The next democrat I'd like to introduce is John Vibert. John is a 4th generation Unionville native from a family with a consistent record of public service. He is the third child out of eleven, all of whom attended Farmington public schools; all graduating from Farmington High. John graduated from Farmington High as member of the Class of 1968 and from the University of Connecticut as member of the Class of 1972.
John is retired from The Hartford Financial Services Group after 33 years of service. Throughout his career he held various managerial positions which have left him with many skills including the ability to work collaboratively with others, and the ability to understand automation directions. Additionally, he has extensive experience creating and reviewing budgets for corporate projects and departments. This experience is directly transferable to the Town Council’s annual budget process.
In support of the town’s residents, John is currently a member of the Farmington Town Council, serving Farmington’s 2nd District, and a member of the Town Land Acquisition Committee. He is also an active member of the Bicycle Advisory Committee. John is the Treasurer of the Farmington Community Chest and is a founding member of Bicycle Friendly Farmington, a new community advocacy group. John was a member of the Farmington Land Trust Board of Directors from 1999 to 2008; serving as its President for five years. His closeness to the community is evident with his past participation on the board of the Unionville Museum; serving as the Museum’s treasurer for six years. John has also been involved with Farmington Youth Soccer, Farmington Youth Baseball and Cub Scout Pack 37.
John resides in Unionville with his wife, Dana and their four children, Jack, Bob, Juliet and Olivia.
