Sally King – Board of Selectmen

Sally is a New England native and a resident of Granby since 1984, having settled in the area in 1979 to start her career as a lawyer with the Hartford firm of Robinson & Cole, where she practiced as an associate and partner until 1993.  Sally has been very active in nonprofit management as a member of the Board of Directors of the Village for Families and Children in Hartford and its president for three years. She also served on the Board of the United Way. She was first elected to the Granby Board of Selectmen in 1993.  

As a member of the Board of Selectmen, Sally has been very active in preserving and protecting open space in Granby.  She worked to create an Open Space Committee and was part of a committee that spent many months creating a list of parcels in Granby that if possible, should be preserved or protected.  Sally believes that in a town of Granby’s size, it is important for our various boards and commissions to work together to preserve Granby’s rural character while maintaining excellence in education and providing necessary services for its citizens.

Sally has owned horses and ridden on the trails in Granby for 30 years.  She is a long-time member of the Granby Horse Council and was elected to their Hall of Fame in 2015.  She has also been active in the sport of dog agility with her Australian Shepherds and regularly visits the Granby schools and Bradley airport with her therapy dog, James.
