Why I Am Running for Town Treasurer

I believe South Windsor deserves elected leaders that really care about good government, honest leadership and a sincerity in service to the office in which they seek. I believe in building up our town, not tearing it down.

My Experience

I have  lived in South Windsor for over 40 years and have been extremely active in both the community and in local government having served as Mayor and Deputy Mayor. I was elected to the Town Council seven times, served on the Economic Development Commission, and I am currently the Town Treasurer.

As a community activist, I’ve led fundraising efforts to build the Boundless Playground and indoor baseball facility at Nevers Park, served as a Scout Leader and Little League coach, and volunteered on behalf of South Windsor Walk and Wheel Ways Committee.

My Vision for South Windsor 

As Town Treasurer, I will continue to oversee all funds expended, ensuring they are being used as approved, budgeted and directed.


Three-year apprentice after graduating high school, as well taking selected college courses related to my career path.
