Jeffrey is running for re-election to Board of Assessment Appeals, having stepped up last year to fill an unexpired term. He is seeking another term based on knowledge and experience. The Board of Assessment Appeals job requires a great deal of familiarity with town property values, neighborhoods, and the legal process. As an experienced lawyer for over 35 years, Jeff has the requisite experience and judgment to fulfill this role. He knows that property values in certain areas of town change over time and that the town’s tax assessor must make sure that the property assessment of each homeowner is fair compared to all members in town.
Jeff is a divorce and personal injury lawyer in Seymour. He has lived in Woodbridge for 25 years with his wife Lynn and two children who have attended the Woodbridge public schools.
Jeff volunteers his time on many occasions on behalf of the Town of Woodbridge. He is a former member of the Woodbridge sewer commission and he recommended that the town join the regional sewer authority, which saved taxpayer money. He is the town’s representative to the Greater New Haven Water Pollution Control Authority. He is also a former member of the Woodbridge tennis court committee who helped bring tennis courts to the center of town; and he served on the town inland-wetlands committee.
A life-long resident of Connecticut, Jeff graduated from Brandeis University with a degree in political science and Boston College Law School. He has been a tennis player all his life, playing college tennis and coaching his son Andrew, who became a four-year player/Captain at UCONN. His daughter is a high school English teacher in Barcelona, Spain. Jeff was also director of junior tennis development for the USTA/CT for 6 years. Jeff believes that Woodbridge is a beautiful town and that “we must be vigilant to protect our property’s value and the town’s own distinctive high-achieving character.”
