Monica Logan moved to the Farmington Valley in 2003 and she and her husband
chose Granby to raise their family in 2016. They have two young sons who attend
Kelly Lane Primary School. As a healthcare attorney, Monica worked at Chubb
Insurance rising to AVP and Senior Claims Technician. She was active in Chubb’s
community outreach committee and served as Chair for two years. She currently
works for The Doctors Company Specialty Underwriters.
Since moving to Granby, she has been active within the community. She joined
the Democratic Town Committee in 2018 and served on the Economic
Development Commission since 2019. Recently, she was appointed to the newly
formed Affordable Housing Commission. She is also a founding member and
serves on the steering committee of Granby Racial Reconciliation, a group of local

and solutions regarding racial reconciliation.
Monica Logan strongly believes that a robust education system helps our
community in endless ways – from providing opportunities and guidance for our
children, to the value of our homes, to the health of our community. One of her
greatest strengths, honed through years of negotiations, is her ability to listen to
different opinions and try to structure a solution from varying thoughts. She has so
much appreciation for this community and is proud to raise her children here. As a
parent, attorney, and strong supporter of the best education we can provide to our
children, she will offer a listening ear and strong voice for our community.
She considers a diverse education to be the biggest foundation for our children to
live happy and successful lives. She is passionate about the importance of
education and how it impacts every student. As a high school student, she was
fortunate to have two devoted and influential educators guide her path in life. The
impact was enormous and genuine. Each student should be given the opportunity
to find the path and skills that give them the most life satisfaction.

long-time resident of the area having grown up in Hartland and has resided in
Granby since 2009. She is a mom to seven children that are spread throughout the
Granby schools and a former Director of Operations at a utility company.
Whitney’s unique experience gives her the ability to get things done. She has a
history of working with a team approach to produce optimum outcomes while
remaining within policy, ensuring safety, and minding a budget. She has also
served the community as a Girl Scout Leader, a member of the Granby Community
Fund, the Granby Education Foundation, Connecticut Association for Foster and
Adoptive Families, and on the Connecticut Regional Advisory Council for DCF.
She makes an excellent candidate who would serve Granby proudly.
Whitney and her husband have been foster and adoptive parents for the last 11
years with at least 30 children finding safety in their home. In doing this, she has
learned how to tirelessly advocate not just for her children, but all children in care
to ensure all their health, wellness and educational needs were being met. With
children in grade K-9, she has firsthand understanding of how early intervention
and robust curriculum enabled her children to succeed and explore different
passions that can lead to success in higher education, trades, internships, or
While passionate about education and children, her drive and organizational skills
come from her degree and expertise in management. As director of operations of a
local water utility, Whitney handled day to day operations as well as ensured
compliance with various entities such as the Health Department, DEEP, and the
board of directors all while staying within budget. Her professional experience
planning and executing on budget as well as complying with regulatory oversight
are all skills that would translate well on the BOE.
If elected, she would offer a unique combination of skills to be a dynamic board
member who is accessible to all.
