Saunders is “one of the best candidates … in 50+ years of politics”

It’s Time for a Change!

Covid has made it very difficult for new candidates to meet voters this year. So, I will tell you about one of the best candidates I have had the privilege to know in 50+ years of politics.

Brendan Saunders is the Republican endorsed candidate for Senate in the 33rd Senatorial District.  I met Brendan this year, I was struck by his honesty and his commitment to run to fight for us in the General Assembly. He has never disappointed me, in his interviews on the radio, his work ethic, to knock on hundreds of doors and to meet and answer as many constituents as possible. 

Brendan grew up in Westbrook, CT. Now, he, his wife Mary and daughter Jordan live in Clinton. He knows the 33rd Senatorial District and the changes to it over the years. He was a high school student when Connecticut was the richest state in the Union. But slowly, citizens became over burdened with taxes. Then he saw the taxes become regressive taxes, taking a larger percentage of income from low-income earners than from high-income earners. So, he began campaigning and supporting like minded candidates, Ed Munster, Art Linares, and Devin Carney just to name a few.

Finally, as Connecticut became a de facto one-party state, he knew he had to run for office. He and  his family want to stay in Connecticut. Brendan supports the police, lower taxes and small businesses. I urge you to vote for Brendan Saunders, he will fight for you in Hartford.
