Amy Morrin Bello
I am a lifelong Wethersfield resident and worked as an Assistant Town Clerk in town for ten years. A graduate of Providence College, I am currently employed at Wesleyan University’s Center for African American Studies. My husband, Rich, and I have been homeowners since 1996 and enjoy raising our three daughters in Wethersfield. My parents and in-laws live in town as well, giving me first-hand knowledge of the needs and wants of three generations of residents.
I am an ardent believer in volunteering and giving back to the community and have put that belief into action. I served on the Cooperative Nursery School Board and Pine Acres Board, as a PTO member, Girl Scout leader, and Faith Formation teacher at the
Church of the Incarnation.
When I ran for Council in 2015, I was excited for the opportunity to represent women in elected office and have worked hard to listen to constituents and realize the importance of representing our community and all of its residents.
As a member of the Town Council and former Mayor, I supported our public schools, the library, economic development, environmental initiatives, and infrastructure investment, all while being mindful of the fiscal responsibility of the Council. I am dedicated to keeping Wethersfield a safe, welcoming, and affordable community and look forward to the opportunity to represent Wethersfield at the state level.
While in elected office, I have served on the Council Budget and Finance Committee, Memorial Day Parade Committee, Public Safety Committee (Chr.), and
Rules and Procedures Committee (Chr.) and as liaison to the Library Board,
Redevelopment Agency, Pension Committee, Historical Society, and
Wethersfield Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities.
WHY I AM RUNNING
I am inspired to be a role model for my daughters and want to create a community where all residents feel welcome, safe and have their voices heard. There is a need for more female representation at all levels of government and I hope to be that voice at the state level, continuing to support initiatives important to me, including advocacy for public education and the environment and the improvement of our economic outlook through business growth and finding efficiencies in government.
