About Jill Barry
As a mother, volunteer, and Town Council Member, Jill is a champion for Glastonbury.
First elected to the Glastonbury Town Council in 2011, Jill immediately set to work building relationships across the aisle to get things done. She knows how to find common ground to accomplish the common good. During her time on the Council, Jill has assisted businesses seeking to expand or relocate. She initiated and passed the “Tobacco Free Parks” program in Glastonbury after hearing concerns from parents and coaches who saw people smoking near children at baseball games. And she enhanced Glastonbury’s appeal for visitors by working with the Town and the PTSO on securing new signs at Riverfront Park detailing the rich history of the area.
Time and time again, the people of Glastonbury have turned to Jill when they need a hand—and Jill is there for them. In 2017, she was the second highest vote-getter on the Town Council, and earned her position as Vice Chair—a testament to her hard work and dedication to our community.
Jill’s commitment to public service goes beyond her work on the Council. She has been a Girl Scout Leader, a Religious Education Teacher at St. Dunstan’s Church, and she always makes time to volunteer at her children’s schools. The Connecticut Association of Schools has even recognized Jill’s exceptional work, bestowing her with two awards for her volunteerism in 2014 and 2017.
Jill currently works as an Account Manager at Graff Wood Association Management Solutions. There she provides accounting, budgeting, and strategic planning for clients—skills that will serve her well in the ongoing economic challenges in Hartford.
