Republican Congressional Candidates Face Off In Debates

by Christopher O'Brien

While the public takes a break from politics to enjoy the international competition in London, the final debates for Republican candidates vying to represent Wolcott in US Congress will be held this week. An August 14th primary will narrow the field down to one nominee. Democrats will also vote the same day choosing from three candidates.

Tonight, at Brookfield High School, four Republicans will debate the issues beginning at 6:30 pm. The school is on Long Meadow Hill Rd. A second debate this week will take place in Newtown at the Edmund Town Hall on Main st. on Thursday. That debate will be at 7 pm.

Candidates participating include former Naval intelligence officer Justin Bernier, local developer Mark Greenberg, Apple Rehab owner Lisa Wilson-Foley and current State Senator Andrew Roraback.

Each candidate thus far has either already been running ads or will be starting next week. In 2010, the Republican nomination was fiercely contested with the three contendors then coming within just three percentage points of each other.
