Debra White
Secretary/Lead Pardon Technician


“I came to volunteer to help Mr. Caron with his political campaign around the end of September, 2011. By the end of October Mr. Caron hired me as his Secretary at the Connecticut Pardon Team, Inc. I learned about the functions and responsibilities that Mr. Caron expected from me about two weeks before going on payroll. Coming from a legal secretarial background of close to thirty years, it was pretty easy to catch on. As I continued to prosper, I believe around February, 2012, Mr. Caron thought that it was time I became involved with the Pardon Process. I am now a pardon technician as well as his Secretary. I enjoy working with our participants who are seeking the pardon process, and who are looking to enhance their lives by this pardon process. We do volunteer extra hours to do our informationals throughout the State of Connecticut. It is rewarding to see the look on some people‚Äôs faces, when they realize that they have a chance to clean up what they messed up.”
