Jon was born in New London, CT, and lived in New England for 15 years before his family moved to Washington State where he met his wonderful wife Erika. (Jon and Erika just celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary!) While they enjoyed their time in Washington, Jon and Erika couldn't help but fall in love with Connecticut during the many visits they made back east to visit family over the years.
In 2005, they decided it was the place for them, and they made the big move back. Jon and Erika couldn't be more thrilled with their decision, and absolutely love raising two beautiful children, Alexis and Olivia, here in Farmington.
Whether it's striving to maintain Farmington’s award-winning school system or providing vital services for seniors, Jon cares deeply about preserving our quality of life here in Farmington. Jon has been very fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to the community as a member of the Board of Education for the past four years, and he would like to continue to do so by serving on the Town Council.
Jon would approach Town Council service with the same philosophies he employed on the Board of Education. In these difficult economic times, we face the challenge of not placing a burden on our families, while continuing to maintain our town’s award-winning school system and excellent core services. Farmington has historically been very prudent in regard to its finances and we must continue to be vigilant in order to keep our fiscal house in order. This means running the most cost-effective town and school system possible, while maintaining the first-rate resident services we all cherish.
Jon moved his family here precisely because of Farmington’s mastery of this fragile balance. Jon is running to follow in the footsteps of decades of strong leadership on our Town Council, where he will continue to preserve this balance so that the next generation can enjoy this wonderful place we all know and love.
Jon was happy to see so many of his friends and neighbors at the Unionville Day festivities and urges anyone with a question to contact him by phone or email.
