FARMINGTON CHAMBER HOSTING FORUM FOR FARMINGTON STATE REPRESENTATIVE AND STATE SENATE CANDIDATES
FARMINGTON (Oct. 11, 2012) – The Farmington Chamber of Commerce will host a special Candidate Forum later this month to hear what the candidates vying for a seat at the state legislative table would do – or not do – if elected to represent Farmington at the State Capitol.
All the candidates for state representative and state senator have been invited to forum in the Farmington. This includes incumbent State Sen. Beth Bye (D-5th), who is running unopposed; incumbent State Sen. Terry Gerrantana (D-6th) and her opponent, Republican Dwight F. Blint of New Britain; incumbent State Rep. Bill Wadsworth (R-21st) and his opponent, Democrat Mike Demicco, a member of the Farmington Town Council; and incumbent State Rep. Brian Becker (D-19th).
“State legislators help mold some of the toughest issues facing our state and ultimately our town,” said Bill Neagus, chamber vice president and chair of the chamber’s Government Affairs Committee. “This is an opportunity for all Farmington voters to get an honest, first-hand idea of what each candidate for the state legislature stands for and how these positions could impact the future of Farmington.”
The Candidate Forum will be 7 – 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 23, in the Farmington High School Auditorium. The public is invited.
