I have lived on Ellison Street since my wife Lynn and I moved to Suffield in 1999. Our home is connected to the town sewer system. I grew up in central Illinois and earned B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in agricultural sciences (plants and soils) from the University of Illinois and the University of Wisconsin. My educational background and 20 years as a scientist at The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station have given me a strong foundation in chemical and biological sciences. I am currently self employed as a consultant regarding control strategies for invasive plants on a wide range of lands across the state. I have served many years on the board of directors for the Suffield Land Conservancy and Friends of the Farm at Hilltop (FOFAH) in addition to being an active member of the Suffield Garden Club and the town’s Tree Committee. I will be a new member on the WPCA commission and look forward to serving my fellow Suffield residents and especially those served by the WPCA. My goal is to quickly learn all aspects of commission responsibilities and to ensure we continue to provide an effective and environmentally sound waste-water treatment system.
