Suki Shergill-Connolly has been a resident of Simsbury since 2007.

Suki is a former Elementary Educator and holds two advanced degrees in Education, and she has continued to work extensively in the education field for over 25+ years, with a focused passion on Literacy. In March 2020 working in collaboration with Dr. Miguel Cardona, US Secretary of Education (former CT Commissioner of Education) and Governor Ned Lamont, Ms. Shergill-Connolly provided high quality, authentic literature for students across the state of Connecticut, while district leaders designed and implemented distance and hybrid learning instructional protocols.Post-pandemic, she continues to work in consultation with all CT school districts, to assist with learning acceleration solutions that will effectively close the learning-loss gaps.

Suki has also served as a co-leader for the Girl Scouts (troop 66530) and has logged numerous volunteer hours at her children’s elementary and middle schools, reading circles at various districts, and serving as the chapter advisor, Delta Gamma at the University of Hartford, mentoring young women. Most recently, Suki served on the Student Parent Teacher Council (SPTC) at Simsbury High School, as the Junior and Senior celebrations co-chair. Although her children are no longer in Simsbury Public Schools, she will continue to serve on the SPTC, assisting the current Junior and Senior celebrations co-chairs.

Suki is all about diversity, equity, and inclusion. She believes that every student and taxpayer should be front of mind when it comes to sustainability of resources and budgeting. Suki is a certified leadership trainer, she can manage differing views and opinions, and navigate conflict with effective resolution strategies.
This is a crucial election for the town of Simsbury, and Suki believes that fiscal conservatism, responsible long-term land use, and transparency in communication is integral to building trust, unity, and equity for all Simsbury residents.
