Ben Charney

Candidate for Zoning Board of Appeals | 2019

My name is Ben Charney, and I’m running for Zoning Board of Appeals. I am a lifelong  resident of Connecticut, a graduate of UConn and a native of Guilford. I have served as an alternate on the Zoning Board of Appeals since being elected in 2017, attending every meeting since joining the board.

While political parties nominate candidates for the ZBA, we operate in a non-partisan fashion. Our board is a team of neighbors helping neighbors to achieve their personal goals, while acting as responsible stewards of this beautiful town.

I’ve been fascinated with cars, engines and construction for my entire life. A love of drawing and photography led me to pursue a degree in fine arts and then to work as a graphic designer at a large architectural firm. I ultimately combined my mechanical and technical curiosities with my interest in buildings to ultimately join the field of HVAC and Building Automation.

My wife and I have been proud to call Killingworth home since 2016. I look forward to continually giving back this amazing community for years to come.
