Democrats Recommend Leonard Lockhart to Fill Peck's School Board Seat

Lockhart is a lieutenant of the Windsor Volunteer Fire Department.

The Windsor Democratic Town Committee's nominating committee has recommended that Leonard Lockart be chosen to fill Milo "Rusty" Peck's vacated Board of Education seat, according to a statement.

The Board accepted Peck's resignation Tuesday evening.

Lockhart was chosen by the nominating committee following a candidate interview conducted by the Democratic Town Committee (DTC) members on Wed., Dec. 21.

The 42-year-old Columbia Road resident's nomination is pending approval by the DTC. If approved by the DTC and the Board of Education, Lockhart would serve the remainder of Peck's term.

Term was re-elected in November, so Lockhart would serve until 2013.

"Mr. Lockart is a perfect match for our children, their schools and the Board of Education, DTC Chair Leo Canty said.

"He will bring a strong commitment to public education and a good insight from our community."

Lockhart is a field service technician for Sensormatic (ADT).

He is also a deacon and trustee at Windsor's Santuary of Faith and Glory Church and serves as a lieutenant with Windsor's Volunteer Fire Department in its Wilson fire house.

Lockhart has been heavily involved with the Hartford Montessori program, serving eight terms as president of the Montessori Magnet School PTA and three terms as vice president of Hartford's Montessori Magnet School Governance Council.

His recommendation will go before DTC members for approval on January 12, 2012.

If approved, his recommendation will then go before the Board of Education in late January.
