I’m running for the Stonington Board of Education because I believe we need to move forward. We, as a school district, town, state, and country have experienced many ups and downs over the past year and a half. I plan to help the Stonington School District continue to provide a quality education and be transparent with the families, students, and teachers. I believe it is important to continue to work to keep our students in school. I want Stonington students to be recognized among the best in the State.
I am a native of New Hampshire and moved to Stonington in 2008 after accepting a position with the Connecticut State Police. In September 2012, I married my wife, Ashley, a North Stonington native. We met during our time at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI.
In 2013 and in 2016, we welcomed our two children into the world. Our son and daughter are now in third grade and kindergarten, respectively, at Deans Mill School. We could not be happier with the experiences the Stonington School District has given to our children.
As a mandated reporter, I will work to keep the students of Stonington safe and hold those accountable who violate the rights of our students.
Throughout my career, I have worked in the many different areas of southeastern Connecticut. I have developed the understanding we all come from unique backgrounds and individual experiences.
While not busy at work, I coach with the Stonington Soccer Club and Junior Sharks. I have spent the past few years coaching baseball with Mystic Little League and the Pawcatuck/North Stonington Little League. I am an avid fan and supporter of the Stonington Flag Football Rec Program and enjoy watching all the players come together on the weekends. I have volunteered at events with Deans Mill School, attended Field Day, school plays, and music shows. I regularly attend mass at St. Patrick’s Church in Mystic and have volunteered my time.
I look forward to getting to know the many residents of Stonington, students, their families, and supporting the Stonington School District. Our students have lost a lot of time over the past year, and I am excited to help Stonington students receive the best education and prepare them for their futures.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to your Vote on November 2.
