Congressional Candidate @ Litchfield-Morris Rotary Thursday

Entrepreneur Mark Greenberg - a Republican candidate for the congressional seat now held by U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy, D-5th District -- will discuss his candidacy and answer questions during an appearance Thursday [March 4] at the Litchfield-Morris Rotary Club.

The club meets at noon at the Forman School in Litchfield. Members and their guests are welcome. For more information, contact Rotary Club President Cliff Cooper @ or 860-567-9876.


As an independent businessman and entrepreneur, Mark Greenberg has dedicated his life to improving his community. He knows firsthand what it takes to create and sustain jobs, as he has done over the last 30 years, providing a livelihood for local families.

After graduating from Cornell University, Mark founded two successful companies. His first company, Adirondack Mobile Telephone and Adirondack Radio Telephone, supplied mobile telecommunication service throughout upstate New York. It was also the official provider of pagers and mobile phones used during the Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid New York.

In 1980, Mark created MGRE, a firm that is now one of the largest real estate management firms based upon residential properties managed.
Mark invested in our communities by opening several local businesses including The Market, a food market specializing in natural fish, meat, and groceries and Goshen Hardware, an old-time hardware store servicing the northwest corner.

Mark and his wife Linda founded The Simon Foundation, Inc, an animal rescue shelter, which has helped adopt more than 500 dogs to loving homes. The foundation is slated to open its new Bloomfield, Connecticut rescue facility in December 2009.

Mark and Linda live with their four young children in Northwest Connecticut.
