Zoning Commission

Current Office: Chairman, Zoning Commission

Why I serve? Isn’t it important for each person to try to make our community a little better today than it was yesterday? The people who have served before me have provided the fulfilling community that our family has enjoyed for 45 years now. Now that I have the time it’s my duty to do my part.

Why I love Simsbury: Simsbury is a community of talented people of diverse backgrounds that provide a rich intellectual environment. And the Town amenities are marvelous. Simsbury is very conveniently located, yet the Town is quite rural in character.

Fun Fact: In 2007, at the Irish Club Festival in Glastonbury, Mike Long and I spent an hour walking the grounds with then Senators Dodd and Biden.
