Candidate 2013

Adam Fleisher, for Board of Education

I dedicated myself early on to serving the schools in my community. During that time, I’ve watched education become the bad guy when it comes to local budget decisions. As a Board of Education member, my first and last concern will be doing what is best for the students.

As a member of the Board of Education, I will use my experience as a parent, a former educator and as an attorney to make thoughtful, informed and responsible decisions that will ensure that Glastonbury schools can continue to provide excellent educational opportunities for the students to be prepared to meet the local and global challenges of the 21st Century.

Cara Tonucci Keefe, Town Council

I chose to settle here for the same reasons many of you chose it: our active and involved residents, open space and parks, and our excellent public schools. I will work across party lines to ensure our community has the open and accessible government we deserve.

Tim Coon, Town Council

During my time on the Board of Education and Town Council, I have always listened to the citizens of Glastonbury on the issues we’ve faced. When it comes to education, economic development, and open space, I will always choose what’s best for all of Glastonbury.

Tom Gullotta, Town Council

How we address the major issues Glastonbury faces today— distinguishing between what is nice and what is necessary to spend your hard earned tax dollars on, open space acquisition, and the redevelopment of the town center—will have a significant impact on our town’s quality of life in the future. That is why I run.  Please feel free to contact me at 860-633-9788 or email

Jill Barry, Town Council

As a member of the Town Council, I bring my professional strengths in budget analysis and strategic planning along with the knowledge gained from my time with Youth & Family Services. I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of Glastonbury.

Doug Foyle, Board of Education

I will continue to fight to preserve our town’s excellent education system and provide pragmatic educational leadership to move us forward.  During my eight years on the Board and in the leadership position of Board Secretary the last two years, I strongly supported transparency, accountability, and responsiveness in the Board’s operations.  Please feel free to contact me with your questions or concerns at 860-306-0602 or
