Zoning Board of Appeals


The Zoning Board of Appeals Needs an Overhaul - Vote November 2

Candidates for a 4-year term

Alan Donnelly

Alan Donnelly graduated Brookfield High School in 1984. He served honorably as a SGT. in the CT Army National Guard 2/192 FA for 6 years as the Communications Chief and is a Lifetime member of the American Legion.

Alan and his wife Michele of 27 years, have three beautiful children, all of which have all gone through the Brookfield Public School System. He believes strongly in his Christian Faith, Family, Liberty, Country and Honor and lives his life accordingly.

As a small business owner, Alan takes great pride in his family and community. He feels the single most pressing issue in Brookfield is preserving and enhancing our small town charm and history; while allowing progress, functionality, safety and beauty.

Alan’s promise to residents of Brookfield is to listen carefully and ask fair, respectful questions while considering all present Zoning Regulations. He is a firm believer in individual Rights and Freedoms and will respect that sentimentality. It’s what makes us Americans.

Karl Hinger

Karl Hinger

In 2020 Karl graduated with a Bachlors degree in Policial Science from WestConn with an emphasis on Social Studies. In 2020 he also married Leanna, who is a Music Teacher in Newtown. 

Karl's interest is to be useful in the community with a passion for helping in his town developed in his experience as an Eagle Scout. He has a philosopy of "bloom where you are planted." 

He also has an affinity for music and theatre on one hand and numbers on the other. This is a good combination for the Zoning Board of Appeals.

A New York City girl, who settled in Brookfield, CT some 28 years ago.  I have since retired from the law firm of Robinson & Cole LLP in Stamford, CT where I worked for several litigation partners as a legal administrative assistant, and have since retired after 25 years of loyal service.  Prior to that, I worked in the federal government for a federal judge and magistrate, and thereafter, on the executive level at the U.S. Attorney’s office under The Honorable Rudolph W. Giuliani, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.  
I am happy, proud, and honored to run as one of the 2021 Republican nominees for Brookfield’s Zoning Board of Appeals.
