I was born in January 1943 and raised in West Suffield. I grew up in a single parent family. In my junior high school days, a teacher used to fondly state that Suffield had more cows than people. I graduated from Suffield High School and joined the US Army. I spent 3 years on active duty, serving both stateside and overseas.
In 1965, not long after my return, I married a girl from Enfield and had 2 daughters.
In 1967, I joined the Enfield Pollice Department ending in 1970. I then began a 43 year career driving tractor-trailer. I purchased my own truck and became self-employed in 1980.
In 2002, my mother passed and I returned to live in my boyhood home back in West Suffield.
I have a strong sense of giving back to others. I served as a volunteer driver for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Transportation Network for 8 years before my appointment to head the Transportation Network out of the West Haven VA Hospital. Additionally, I served as the state Commander of the DAV from 2015 – 2016.

Why I am running for the Water Pollution Control Authority? I have lived in Suffield for 40 years. My husband and I have two adult children who attended our public schools. I am a former member of the Zoning and Planning Commission, 1986-1990. I have been on the Zoning Board of Appeal... Read more »
