Rob Sampson Hosts Meet & Greet Tonight

by LonSeidman

Republicans are gearing up in Wolcott to pick their best possible candidates for the August 10th primaries. Robert Sampson and Alan Giacomi will be facing each other in a primary as will three gubernatorial candidates, two lieutenant governor candidates, at least a few candidates for US Congress and perhaps others. Candidate Rob Sampson is hosting the first campaign event in Wolcott this election season tonight at J& M Pizza between 5 and 7:30 pm. Any resident is invited to stop by and ask him ome ask questions of these candidates to see who you think would best represent Wolcott and run our state.

Two months ago the Wolcott and Southington Town Committees held a joint convention where they chose Robert Sampson as their nominee to challenge current state representative John “Corky” Mazurek. However, local attorney Alan Giacomi recieved enough votes to challenge that nomination. The choice now goes to Wolcott and Southington’s 6,000 Republican voters.

State Senate candidate Joe Markley is running for the 16th Senatorial District seat and may also be on hand for the event. Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton plans on stopping by the function to meet Wolcott residents for his bid for lieutenant governor. Candidate for Govenor, Mike Fedele also may make an appearance. Both Boughton and Fedele are facing multi-candidate primaries for their races.

All are welcome to stop by and ask Mr. Sampson why he is running for the state legislature. Give him your concerns and input so you can compare the candidates in this busy election season. A $10 donation is requested for his campaign and food will be provided.

Note: Expect that a number forums and fundraisers will be held in the upcoming weeks. Independents may register for a major party until the day before the August 10th primary in order to vote in that party’s primary. The Whisper will publicize any other candidates’ local fundraisers and forums that Wolcott voters could attend so they can be best informed.
