Pickard.jpgLegislative Council, District 3

My wife, Lauren, and I moved to Newtown in early 2014, to provide our children with better school choices and to enjoy the idyllic charm of this wonderful community. Since arriving, our children have made many friends and participate in local activities such as Gymnastics, Lacrosse, Dance and Soccer.

While coaching my son’s teams, I have developed a tremendous affection for Newtown and its citizens. This opportunity to serve this community as a member of Legislative Council is something I take very seriously. I am running for Legislative Council to bring positive outcomes to the budget approval process. As your District 3 representative I will always be available to hear your questions and concerns because we are all in this together.
