Glenn Rooney

Glenn Rooney - Incumbent

As Incumbent Chairman of the Board of Finance, Glenn has led a very qualified and dedicated team for the past few years to bring Brookfield to the forefront of financial excellence. This is proven by our S&P Audit which clearly states excellent financial management and budgetary process. It is also proven by our clean annual audit. 
Glenn has lived in Brookfield Ct for over 30 years now and has seen the growth and advancements in our town and would like to continue with them under a controlled growth plan that not only makes sense but is affordable to our residents.
Glenn has consistantly demonstrated a drive to find the facts and tenacity to get things right are in my opinion what our town needs. Vote for Glenn and the rest of the incumbents on the GOP team so we can continue to bring Brookfield the services and growth it deserves to continue to be a great town to live in and raise our families.

Brianna Ruocco - Incumbent

Brookfield has been home to Brianna for the last fifteen years.  Everyday confirms her choice to raise my family here. Brianna’s son has grown up here and is currently a junior at Brookfield High School. He is officially a “13 year club” member.

In addition to being elected to Board of Finance in 2019, Brianna works as Operations Manager for a local business that spans three states. In that capacity, she manages the efficiency of all departments, ensuring they stay within budget and handles monthly financials to all locations. This ensures all accounts are compliant and in order.  Her professional life requires creativity to address difficult situations and she has brought this to her service on Brookfield’s fiduciary board. In a second term, Brianna will focus monitoring of ongoing and planned capital projects, reviewing grand list growth with economic development and helping Brookfield get the most out of its tax dollar as our state, town, and taxpayers themselves come out of Covid-19 world. Her record in office reflects an ability to work across party lines on the BOF and with our Boards of Selectmen and Education while at the same time adhering to fiscally conservative principles that have successfully guided her in her personal, professional, and public service life. Brianna is committed to delivering representation on the BOF that treats taxpayers like a valued customer, seeks to bring down expenditures and ensures accountability for results. EVERY Board of Finance should have at least ONE member like that.
