Other facts

It has been an honor to represent Farmington. My record as a State Representative follows the commitment I had as a member of the Farmington Town Council for 11 years, and I am proud to say I have a 100% voting record on the floor of the Connecticut House of Representatives. I have been fully committed to my responsibilities as representative and as a member of the Appropriations, Transportation and Human Services Committees.

I have been accessible through many different avenues and have an absolute commitment to serving all the constituents of this district, and of preserving and strengthening educational opportunities, the economy, the environment and the culture of this community that my family has called home since its founding.

I attended Farmington Public Schools, served in the United States Army as a Military Policeman and am a graduate of the University Of Connecticut School Of Engineering. From my work on the family farm beginning at age eleven to my career as Vice President of CASLE Corporation where I was responsible for the construction of many industrial, commercial and educational facilities in the Farmington Valley and throughout the State of Connecticut I have a true appreciation for what it takes to create private sector jobs.

My focus is to ensure Connecticut is a choice place to live, with quality educational opportunities, a strong private sector job market and vibrant economy that encourages economic investment. We have so much to be proud and optimistic about in our state and I will continue to work to ensure all of these things are possible now and for future generations.
