About My Candidacy

This short Bio is an introduction of who I am as a candidate. While many candidates are heavily branded, few people really know their elected leaders and officials personally. To start, I will take no exception to the fact that my opponents are formidable candidates. As I understand it, they both are very active in local politics,   but last election each chose not to run. This year with Amann out they are interested in the job. As opportunistic as this may seem, I wish for you to know that I was the first to announce, because unlike my opponents and respective parties I did not fear the odds of a popular incumbent. What was most important to me then, before this change, was giving the voters of Milford and our district an alternative. I believe in an American Republic where its leaders are democratically elected and you have a choice.

Although my political activity has been relatively dormant over the last decade or so, I am no stranger to politics. Currently, I am a small business owner here in Milford, CT. My company is called the ComputerFox and like many people here in Milford I provide a trade to the community of which supports my family, and my employees families.

My two children are currently both in Middle School. My eldest step-daughter is just starting off her career as a teacher, and my youngest step-daughter will soon be off to High School. I have a total of four children three girls and one boy.  I have two wonderful children from my first marriage and I have two fantastic children with my current partner, who has dedicated her life to her family as a homemaker and a mother.

My father, Rocco J. Frank, Sr., is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, who has lived and practiced in CT almost his entire career.  My parents have, for over 2 decades, and still currently own and operate the Westport Animal Hospital.  I have two brothers, one of which is also a veterinarian, one sister, and a very large extended family.

Together we have lived in several CT towns, including Westport, Southport, and Milford, and I personally have lived in Hamden, & Berlin. I own ComputerFox stores in Milford, Norwalk, & Fairfield.  My Fraternal lodge is in Stratford. With this said, I am no stranger to the local communities, people and politics of many Southern CT Municipalities.

Over the last five years I have also been active in several CT Masonic lodges in key leadership positions and have also been a member of the Milford Chamber of Commerce, the Fairfield Kiwanis Club and the Better Business Bureau. I am a past member of the International Narcotics Enforcement Officers Association as well a former Per Diem contractor for the state of CT as a Special Deputy Sheriff appointed by the then Elected High Sheriff Ed Mak.

My education and training are all local to the state of Connecticut, as I am a graduate of Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT, and have attended the CT School of Electronics in West Haven, CT. My major in college was Political Science, and at CSE I studied Electronics.  Currently I use my CSE post-graduation education in conjunction with my present career as the CEO of ComputerFox Stores.

My past political experiences are mostly in Republican politics, and over the last several years have been increasingly focused on what is best for our American Republic. I believe in ideas that preserve our individual freedom and pursuit of happiness and adamantly oppose a strong central government. My political beliefs do not limit me to a Republican party or Democratic party paradigm, but rather to the bigger ideal of what is American and Un-American, and what is American to me is this great republic's Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution, both of which I vigorously defend.

In the past I have had many strong ties to the Republican party.  I have served on, and in, many local political youth organizations and have taken part in Republican Presidential and Gubernatorial campaigns. Today I view politics with far greater skepticism and suspicion than many years ago. My party affiliation is Independent as my ambitions for CT are aimed at prosperity and a future where economic opportunity and affordability exists for all who are willing to embrace it.

My colleagues and I invite you to continue through our website.  Please E-Mail me or comment on the issues that face you and your family. I invite you to stop into our headquarters to sign our petitions or to volunteer to make a change. For this reason my campaign has adopted the phrase E Pluribus Unum or Out of Many come One. and all are welcome.
