Democrat Tom Kyzivat is a candidate for Simsbury Planning Commission
I have a B.A. from the University of Virginia, a J.D. from
George Washington University Law School and an LL.M. in Insurance Law from the
UConn School of Law
I have been employed for over 20 years as an attorney with
The Hartford Insurance Group where I presently manage a group of lawyers who
defend Hartford insureds in a variety of litigation. Previously I was an Assistant District Attorney in New York.
are you seeking office?
I want to play an active role in the future of our community,
particularly in light of the opportunity we have regarding The Hartford
property. I also made a commitment
to myself that I would focus my volunteer time on Simsbury after my involvement
with a Hartford based non-profit was over.
What experience do you bring to the table?
I was an active member of the board of directors of a Hartford based non-profit agency that provided financial education, asset building and work force development services to low and moderate-income residents. I served on the board for 7 years, the last three as president.
do you feel is the town's most pressing issue?
The sale/development of The Hartford property.
do you love most about town?
The people, the open spaces and the beautiful vistas.
do you like to do for fun?
I enjoy watching my children play sports – previously Little League, Travel Soccer and now high school sports. I also take advantage of our beautiful Farmington Canal Heritage Trail where I bike, run and in-line skate.
