Mike Toppi

“Glastonbury is a special place. My parents moved here in 1979. and after being discharged from the U.S. Air Force and two years of college in California, I returned to my family’s home in Glastonbury. Over the next few years I worked as a Hartford Police Officer, completed my undergraduate education at The University of Connecticut and met my wife – GHS Class of 1981. After several corporate relocations, we finally came home to Glastonbury for good in 1998. Over the last thirteen years my family has enjoyed the countless benefits of a safe and secure community with a world-class public infrastructure and educational system. Now it’s time for me to give back to a community that’s been so good to my family and me. As a member of the Board of Finance I will work to maintain the tradition of sound fiscal discipline by applying the rigor that’s essential to maintaining our coveted AAA credit rating.”
