Office:Board of Finance


My wife Diane and I have lived in Newtown since 2002.  We have 2 children, Kaelyn who is 12 and Aidan who is nearly 11.  Both children attend Newtown public schools and are actively engaged in the many academic, athletic and social aspects that our great schools offer.

We truly love living in Newtown. The people, culture and the New England flavor sets Newtown apart from so many other Connecticut towns.


As a Board of Finance candidate, I would be entrusted with ensuring we maintain and continue to improve the quality of life we all enjoy.  Whether you are a new or a lifelong resident, a young family or retiree, I will strive to ensure that we realize the quality of life each of us work so hard to achieve. 


I, along with each of the members of the Board of Finance and the various town departments, regardless of political affiliation, will work hard to improve the financial strength of our town through common-sense and practical approaches to sustainable commercial and residential development, preservation of our environment, and a commitment to every resident to maintain excellence across all levels of our educational systems.

I look forward to serving Newtown to ensure a high quality of life by providing innovative ideas and implementing common sense solutions that will benefit all.
