Lenny has lived in Montville since 1971. He and his wife Deonn have been together for 24 years and are a blended family of five children and 10 grandchildren. The Bunnell family has been apart of this town for three generations. In 1976 Lenny began working part time for the Montville Police Department advancing to a full time career in 1982 and retired September 2018.
Throughout his 42 years of service with the Montville Police Department he was actively involved in the Public Safety Commission, a regular attendee of the Town Council meetings, an active member of the Montville Youth Advisory Board, Commission on Aging and a past member of the Economics Development Commission. As the Police Department’s Executive Officer and Department Head, he was responsible for the $2 million plus operating budget as well as the 26 member department. The members included uniformed officers as well as clerical personnel.
His myriad of responsibilities, to name a few, included operations, budgets, training, scheduling, purchasing and bargaining unit matters. He routinely worked with all town agencies, boards , commissions and departments. Currently, he is an Account Manager for Securitas Security Services at Pfizer in Groton, Connecticut. Lenny has always made time for personal concerns of town residents; this is a quality that will continue as second nature in service to the town. While he has not held public office per se; his total overall experience with the activities of the Town of Montville could be of great benefit to the Town.
