Seeking your vote
It has been a privilege to serve on the Cromwell Town Council these past years, and I ask for your continued support on Nov. 2 so I can again represent you, the taxpayers, in my fullest capacity as a member of the Town Council.
I am a lifelong resident of Cromwell and a former small-business owner for 45 years, having retired in 2010. I have been recognized multiple times through the years for my dedication to our town. I was honored to be the 2013 recipient of the Community Service and Involvement Award from the Cromwell Athletic Club as well as the 2015 Man of the Year by the Cromwell Knights of Columbus for my contributions to the town and its youth programs.
I have been an active volunteer for many community organizations, dedicating my time to numerous fundraisers. Organizing the Memorial Day Parade each year on behalf of the American Legion and the town is an incredibly rewarding experience. I played a key part in getting Mr. Frisbee's name attached to Riverport Park at Frisbee Landings. I have been a life member of the Cromwell Historical Society for over 20 years and am a member of American Legion Post #105. My membership in the Cromwell Outboard Association has spanned over 30 years. Townspeople know that when I get involved, I’m in it for the long haul.
I have participated in Cromwell government for more than 20 years, including 12 years as a member of the Board of Selectmen and eight years on the Town Council. Prior to this time, I served on the Economic Development Commission and was chairman of the Capital Expenditures Commission; in these roles I worked to bring new businesses to the town and helped manage spending requests from department heads.
I’ve been married to my wife Lori for 55 years. Together we have three grown children and five grandchildren.
I respectfully request your vote on Nov. 2.
