George Logan is a family man, engineer, community leader, and a small business owner. His grandparents left Jamaica for Guatemala during the Great Depression, and like so many other American families, George’s parents left Guatemala and came to America to grow a family and build a better life. George has spent his life finding ways to solve problems big and small, and he’s not afraid to roll up his sleeves and do the same in Congress to deliver better outcomes for the people of Connecticut.
During his two terms in the State Senate, George fought backbreaking tax hikes and fiscal mismanagement. He tackled the tough issues facing the wellbeing of his community and brought people together to fight the opioid epidemic to find solutions that work.
George grew up in a family that put faith and hard work first and foremost. His parents worked hard in factory jobs and office administrative work to put him through school and give him the opportunity for a better education and a better job.
George graduated from Trinity College with a bachelor’s degree in engineering, and he went on to graduate with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Bridgeport. George started his career nearly thirty years ago at Aquarion Water Company. He worked his way up starting in engineering, moving on to environmental management and now community relations.
As the beneficiary of community organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and YMCA, George has made it his mission to give back to these and other organizations that make an important difference in strengthening our neighborhoods. Offering his experience and volunteer time is an essential part of George’s life, including serving as a girls’ basketball coach, as a board member for Griffin Hospital, local Chamber of Commerce, local YMCA, Housatonic Valley Association, Junior Achievement, BHCare and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra. In recognition of his service, George has received awards from the YMCA and the NAACP.
George is the proud husband of Lisa, who is a nurse with the State Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services; their son Hunter, is a recent graduate of Emerson College in Boston, MA; and daughter Tracey, is a junior and recently made the Dean’s List at Iona College in New Rochelle, NY.
