South Windsor is a wonderful town and as the elected Town Treasurer, it’s been an honor to serve the town these last two years. I have lived in town for the last 20 years and my two kids have been part of our wonderful school system.

This year, I am running for the Board of Education, for an opportunity to give back to our excellent school system. If elected, I will consider it a privilege to be involved in making sure that our schools maintain their high standards.

Our town is in the middle of unexpected growth in the school age population and our schools have to accommodate these changes while making sure that we do so without compromising on the high quality of education that the South Windsor school system delivers.

I seek your support and vote because with my background in education, I will be very effective as a board member, both in helping our schools face the current challenges and in preparing for the future.
