Gil Salk

Hebron Zoning Board of Appeals

Hebron Zoning Board of Appeals candidate GIL SALK has been a resident home-owner of Hebron for about 35 years, is married, and has an adult daughter who graduated from RHAM.

Gil has served in several elective and appointed Town offices including the Conservation Commission, Planning and Zoning Alternate, Hebron Citizens Green Committee, and the Hebron Democratic Town Committee. His interests include reading, photography, hiking, swimming, fishing, art, the environment, and community service.

Since Gil retired several years ago as owner of Books & Birds Used & Rare Books in Manchester (a business he ran for more than 20 years), he has become a professional figure model, posing for classes at UConn, Lyme Academy College of the Arts, Wesleyan University, Connecticut College, Marlborough Arts Center, MCC and MCC on Main, and other locations.

Prior to his experience as owner of Books & Birds, Gil was the Director of CT NARAL - the first male Director of a NARAL chapter in the country.  He has also served as Fund-Raising Director of the Greater Hartford Heart Association, Director of a program to develop a Crime Victims’ Bill of Rights for the CT Justice Commission, and Director of both the Martin Luther King Jr. Social Action Council and Draft Counseling Services at the University of Massachusetts.

Gil was appointed by Gov. Ella Grasso to be one of the first three members of the Connecticut Victim Compensation Board, was President of the Natchaug Ornithological Society, and has been a Board member of both the National Organization for Victim Assistance and the Marlborough Arts Center.

Gil invites Hebron citizens (and others) to learn more about him by visiting his Facebook and LinkedIn pages, and requests the support of Hebron voters in November’s election.

(P.S.   Gil would like voters to know that his wife says that she will vote for him.)
