Patrick Hughes

As an East Lyme resident of over 30 years, I have seen the Town flourish under Republican leadership. My wife, Margret, and I are fortunate to be long time residents and have our family grow here. We have 2 beautiful daughters, Tara and Bridget, who graduated from the East Lyme School system and still reside in the local area.

I first arrived in East Lyme as a Navy Chief Petty Officer on a Submarine homeported in Groton. I was able to complete my career in the Navy, retiring from Active Duty in 1999/2000.

I started a career in pharmaceutical sales with Roche Pharmaceuticals for 2 years and have been with Johnson & Johnson for 21 years. 

First elected in 2015, I have served on the Board of Assessment Appeals for the past 8 years  and look forward to continuing to give back to this great Town as a Board Member. 

I am a past Commander of Kari Hill VFW Post 5849 in Niantic, Past Chairman of East Lyme Veterans Council and a current member of ST Mathias Knights of Columbus.
