Kevin McCann was unanimously endorsed as the Republican Candidate for Probate Judge in the 4th District that consists of Windsor, South Windsor and East Windsor.
Kevin McCann, a partner in the law firm of Hinckley, Allen & Snyder, in Hartford is seeking to complete the term of Judge Brian Griffin, who passed away suddenly in February. A Special Election will be held August 21st.
For the past 22 years, McCann has practiced exclusively in Trust, Estate, and Probate law. “Unlike litigation, bankruptcy, or divorce law,” says McCann, “Trusts and Estates is where an attorney truly becomes a trusted family advisor, a role which may last for generations. I enjoy that role tremendously, and would like to serve a similar role as probate judge.” Last year, Hartford Magazine listed McCann as one of Greater Hartford’s Top Attorneys in Trusts & Estates, based on a survey of his peers.
McCann is a member of the Elder Law, Estates & Probate, and Tax Sections of the Connecticut Bar Association. He belongs to the Greater Hartford Probate Forum, and the Estate & Business Planning Council.
McCann is well-known for his community service. He is currently:
- Serving his fourth term on the South Windsor Town Council.
- A Board Member and Finance Committee Chairman of the South Windsor Community Foundation.
- Serving over 10 years on the Advisory Council of Women’s Health Research at Yale
- An active member of the South Windsor Rotary Club
He has a long history of public service and volunteerism. In recent years, Kevin was
- Member of the CT Bar Association Pro Bono Committee
- Board Member of the Connecticut Breast Cancer Coalition
- Chairman of the Planning & Zoning Commission
- Elementary Schools Steering Committee Member
- Vice-chairperson of the Parks & Recreation Commission
- President of the South Windsor Little League Baseball
Kevin has lived in South Windsor for 29 years. He and his wife, Chris, have 3 grown children, Daniel, Katie, and Carolyn, who are his most important “support group”.
Windsor Republican Town Committee Chair Ronald Eleveld remarked: “Mr. McCann’s experience in practicing Estate and Trust Law is essential and extremely beneficial to understanding the issues and being able to work with those who appear before the Probate Court. His decades of community involvement and pro bono work have provided him with the knowledge and expertise needed to work with and understand the needs of all our citizens. I know many of our citizens when meeting Mr. McCann will feel as I do that he would make an excellent and fair Judge of Probate.”Share/Bookmark
The Windsor Republican Town Committee (“WRTC”) elected a new executive board.
The Windsor Republican Town Committee (“WRTC”) elected a new executive board with Ronald Eleveld, former Town Councilman, as the new Chair. “We have put together a great team. We are concerned about the economic situation facing many families in Windsor and beyond. We will continue to work for accountability in our schools and government, with the ultimate goal of restraining the growth of government and its tax burden.”
In addition to a new Chair, the WRTC elected, John Ahern and Cari Turek as Vice Chairs, Karen Andrews as Secretary, and Barry Towers as Treasurer. John Eichner was appointed Deputy Treasurer by Chairman Eleveld.
Eleveld also stated: “This will be a challenging year and we are looking forward to encouraging people to become more involved in the community and take part in town meetings and elections. These ultimately affect residents and their families most directly on the local level. We recently witnessed that involvement with the recent Dollar Tree activities.”
The Windsor Republican Town Committee believes residents should become informed and get involved in their community. We welcome new members and interested residents wanting to make Windsor a better community, a more attractive and affordable place to live, work and raise a family.
The WRTC meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:30PM in Windsor Town Hall. You do not have to be a member of the WRTC to attend one of our meetings.
