Don holds a BA in Planning and an MS in Community Development. He worked as a town manager in several New Hampshire towns before founding Municipal Resources Inc. in 1990, a specialized boutique consulting group that provides municipal management and community development services throughout New England.
Don is a Big Brother volunteer and the human member of a certified therapy dog team with K9 partner Winni, his 4-year-old Portuguese Water Dog. Don and his wife Terry moved to New Hampshire from upstate New York in 1970 and have lived in their home on Lake Winnipesaukee since 1992. They raised three sons on the lake. In semi-retirement mode, Don remains active in consulting projects on a limited basis but prefers boating, golfing, exploring the outdoors with Terry and his dogs, tending to his honey-do list, and eliciting eye rolls from his five grandchildren with “grandpa jokes.”
