Experience and qualifications
I have been a sales representative for Connecticut Distributors for the past 19 years. I have developed many skills from my career that will be beneficial to Suffield, most importantly the ability to listen. Each day I spend time with small business owners listening to their struggles and achievements in these trying times.
I have served on the Police Commission and I am currently an alternate on Advisory Commission for Capital Expenditures (ACCE).
I have lived in town for the past 16 years. My wife Amy and I have 3 children Norah, Sadie and Cullen which are all in the Suffield school system.
My family and I are ardent supporters of Alex’s Lemonade Stand. A cause very special to us.
I am also a weekly volunteer at the Suffield Senior Center.
I am also involved in the Hartford-New Ross, Ireland sister cities program.
Why am I running?
As a member of ACCE I have a snapshot of major expenditures we will have in the future. This gives me great insight. We MUST be fiscally responsible now more than ever. The state budget is a mess.
I have been very forthright with my opposition to the Bridge Street School project. While I agree it may be a great asset to the town but at what cost??? We can’t afford a luxury item like this. Haven’t we learned our lesson about renovating old buildings from the library? The BSS project is another debacle waiting happen.
We must protect the assets we have now to extend there longevity. Let’s not “kick the can down the road”. Our infrastructure needs constant care to extend its longevity and usefulness.
I want to work WITH Melissa Mack and the Board to continue to move Suffield forward.
These are trying times with difficult decisions ahead. I will always put Suffield’s needs above wants. I believe I am the right person for the job.
I hope to earn your vote!
