Andy Paterna – A South Windsor Leader

paterna2Great story appearing now about South Windsor Town Councilor Andy Paterna!

From the Hartford Courant and the Reminder News.

For years, Town Council member Andrew Paterna (D) taught students at Manchester Community College about health and nutrition, and he brought that same theme to the South Windsor FOOD Alliance.

“I think our goal is to try and build a stronger community around local food,” Paterna said. “I always wanted to give something back to the community because I always felt that South Windsor gave me and my family a lot.

Paterna has been the co-chair of the SW FOOD Alliance since 2012. Many may have seen him at the summer and winter farmers’ markets with Market Master Sandy Jeski. He said the market is the main project that the alliance works on.

The summer market serves up to 1,000 shoppers every Saturday and has all local vendors from South Windsor and surrounding towns, Paterna said.
