Town Council

Kelly LeppardMy name is Kelly Leppard and I am running as a Democrat for the Southington Town Council. Born and raised here in Southington, I know firsthand the value of our community and the responsibility of taking on a leadership role. As a former employee for the Town of Southington from 2005 to 2020, I was the first Youth Prevention Coordinator for the STEPS Coalition. What started out as a need to help our youth turned into a successful structure for change, bringing together community partners – including our schools, businesses, the YMCA, police, and others – to work towards a common goal.

I am a very proud wife of a Southington Police Officer and work for the State of Connecticut as a Primary Prevention Services Coordinator for the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.  I am enrolled in UConn’s Master of Public Administration Fellows Program. My experience bringing people together to solve tough problems will be an asset to the Council and ultimately the Town of Southington as a community.

Local issues are solved on the local level. By working together and creating strong community partnerships, Southington wins.
