Marilyn Pet has been a resident of East Hartford for almost 20 years. My husband and I run a real estate business - purchasing, renting, and selling condominiums to individuals in the Greater Hartford area. My husband, Donald Pet, is actively involved in a World Peace Project; I help him in that endeavor. I am the mother of three and grandmother of seven.
The attaining of a law degree in 1986 allowed me to represent children and parents in matters before the Superior and Probate Courts. I am involved in my community as a member of the East Hartford Democratic Town Committee. I have been appointed to the Greater Hartford Transit District and have served there for over 10 years. I have been a member of the East Hartford Economic Development Commission since 2002 and chaired that organization from 2007 to 2011. I am a member of the East Hartford ChildPlan, an umbrella non-profit organization of Child and Family Servicing Agencies in East Hartford. I have also serviced on the East Hartford School Readiness Council for over fifteen years and am a Board Member of Riverfront Recapture. I am an active watercolor and graphite artist, mostly of botanical subjects, so I am particularly interested in the Arts Program in the East Hartford Public Schools.
