“As a police officer, I know the importance of staying connected to my community.  I believe in efficient government, good management of the town’s resources, excellent education, economic growth and a quality of life for all.  If given the privilege to remain a member of the Town Council, I will continue to preserve the charm and warmth Glastonbury has to offer its residents.”
