Chris Rago – Water Pollution Control Authority

2019 Chris Rago Img0434 Final_0005


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 Appeals for 18 years, and the Library Commission for 7 years.
I have found being part of these boards has helped me to understand better how our town government works.  I have also learned how to work toward consensus decisions.
A side benefit of participating in our town government is that of meeting great fellow townspeople.
In June I toured the Water Pollution Control Authority facility under the guidance of Chief Operator Jamie Kreller.  This then inspired me to attend a WPCA Commission meeting.  I realized what an amazing, complex, and essential part of this  – or any- town this is.
I would like the opportunity to maintain and support the WPCA’s highest standards possible by becoming a thoughtful Commission member.
