Why are you a great candidate for this position, right now? What’s your mission in running for this position?

I was raised, grew up and have lived in Terryville/Plymouth my entire life. I have seen things in this town come and go. I’ve witnessed missed opportunities for the town to move forward. I’m running to ensure the town thrives for all residents young and old, to bring back places in town people can enjoy and for community.

What’s your favorite place to visit in town? What do you like to do there? Or: What spot in town do you feel holds the most promise and how would you like to help make it all it can be?

Festa Forest Trails… I go relax n reflect… it calms me. The trails however are narrow and could use an upgrade, I feel with that upgrade the trails would be used more. Example – Scoville Reservoir in Wolcott. Doing some research on it with pricing and labor or volunteering my time and effort to help with the upgrade.
