Why I Am Running for Planning & Zoning

I am running for Planning and Zoning because as a 38-year resident who raised a family in South Windsor, I want to be able to give back to my community.  My wife, my family, and I have benefitted from all that the town and the people have to offer.  

I have a skill set that will be beneficial to help ensure that the future development of the town continues in a positive way.

My Vision for South Windsor

My hope is to help ensure that all proposed projects, large and small, fit into the overall development of South Windsor and that they not be viewed just as stand alone projects.

Our town has developed into a wonderful and very desirable place to live and raise a family and I want to help make sure that continues.

My Experience

As an engineer with two Fortune 500 manufacturing companies, I worked with major development projects and have been involved at a senior level.  During my time as a General Counsel, I was extensively involved with mergers and acquisitions, ensuring that each individual move was a necessary piece of the greater overall good for each company. 

Finally, as CEO of a trade association covering the $100 billion pet industry, I saw how changes in the marketplace impact companies.
