Two years ago I ran for First Selectman. I am currently on the Windham Open Space Advisory Committee, and Recording Secretary of IBEW Local 35.  

I graduated from UConn in 1978. Bob Hackemack and I chose to settle in Willimantic because of the friendly, small-city atmosphere, the beauty of the Victorian homes and the wonderful people.
