Clinton Democratic Town Committee

Jack Scherban – Town Council

I have lived in Clinton for 45 years, and I have always been involved in local service.  When my three children were growing up, I taught CCD at St. Mary’s, coached Little League, and American Legion baseball.  I attended every sporting event and concert, and I watched my children grow and thrive in the Clinton Public Schools. 

I am proud of those three children, who are now successful, happy adults.  I am proud of my nine grandchildren, three of whom are now at Joel and Eliot schools.  I am proud of 50 years of marriage to my wife, a retired Clinton teacher. I am proud to be a Vietnam Veteran…and I am proud to be a candidate on the Democratic Ticket for a seat on the Town Council.

When I retired from a career in banking, I became active in town government.  In the past I have served as Chairperson of the Board of Finance, and on the Capital Expenditure Committee, the Bonding Committee, and the Police Pension Committee.  All of these experiences prepared me for a seat on the Board of Selectmen, where I have been serving for the last two years. 

Two years ago this Town elected a new leadership team.  Together we turned a page and have focused on good government, strong ethical standards, and economic development.  The transition to a Town Manager is a concept that we endorsed before we were elected. And now we stand for election to the Town Council, so that we can see the change in government come to fruition.
