has won the bid to seek the 35th Assembly District Seat, covering Killingworth, Clinton and part of Westbrook, his campaign group announced.
According to the press release, the former chairman of the Killingworth Republican Town Committee was selected unanimously at a convention on Wednesday, May 16.
Westbrook's James Crawford currently holds the seat Samperi seeks, and the election will be held in November.
Samperi spoke to supporters following Wednesday's convention, the release says:
“It is critical to have plain common sense be a state government priority. Common sense tells us not to spend more money than we have, to cut back where we can, and be responsible with the taxpayers' money—your money!"
“The taxpayers of the 35th district are simply fed up with more and more taxes, less services and disappointment from our legislators in Hartford. I plan to bring common sense and a commitment to excellence to Hartford."
