In October 2011, Jane Cornell was hired as the town's Agent for the Elderly. She is a registered nurse and has lived in Hampton since 1978. Her grandparents, John and Lucy Lewis were lifelong resident of Hampton. Jane has over 20 years experience as a visiting nurse, care manager and discharge planner.  She has worked with seniors through programs at the McSweeny and Willington Senior Centers.
