WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Board of Finance elected Republican member Jennifer Tooker as its next chairman.
The election took place after former Chairman John Pincavage announced that he would be stepping down from his position as chair to focus on other commitments. Pincavage, who formally nominated Tooker for Chair, will continue to serve on the Board of Finance.
Tooker’s nomination was seconded by Board of Finance member Michael Rea.
“Jennifer Tooker’s experience on the Board of Finance, and as a former member of the Board of Education, give her unique insights in Westport’s budget and financial matters. She will be an excellent Chair of the Board of Finance,” said Rea.
Tooker is a retired senior manager of Gen Re, one of the world’s largest reinsurance companies. She is an active volunteer in town, a Westport Sunrise Rotary Club member, a Westport Recreational Soccer coach and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Westport Weston Family YMCA. She earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from The University of Notre Dame.
She and her husband, Morris, have lived in Westport since 2008, and have three children.
