Name: Paul Krasusky
Party and Position Running For: Democrat, Town Council Member
Family: Born & raised in Tolland, I lived on Carriage Dr. for 25yrs and have lived on Susan Drive for the past 15; my mother Eileen continues to reside on Carriage Dr. My wife Jennifer & I have been married 15yrs, and have three active and wonderful children – Tyler, Jillian, and Mallory. Jennifer was previously a tenured teacher with experience in elementary ed, special ed, and high school, which has afforded me great insight into the system / process.
Previous political experience: None – I am rather apolitical, and am not much of a proponent of the dual-party system. I tend to view things from a sensible, logical perspective – whether an opinion or view is considered to be Democratic or Republican – and not be categorized into one ‘box’ or the other.
Other Experience: Commercial Banker for the past 17yrs, managing a portfolio of business loans. Participant, organizer, and promoter of various Motorsports activities.
Living in Tolland my entire life, I feel I am an ambassador of sorts for the Town and take pride in its success. As I historically attend many of the Town meetings, I felt honored by being nominated to run for Town Council and excited by the opportunity to help shape Tolland’s future.
