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
