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
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
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.
