Killingworth's John Samperi Announces for 35th Assembly Seat

“I believe the taxpayers of the 35th district are simply fed up with more and more taxes, less services and nothing but more of the same unless there is new thinking in Hartford."


Former Killingworth Republican Town Committee Vice Chairman, John Samperi announced today he has filed the necessary forms to seek the 35th Assembly District seat covering the towns of Killingworth, Clinton and part of Westbrook in this years November election. 

Samperi  told a gathering of family, friends and supporters, “it’s critical a common sense commitment to Connecticut is a state government priority.  My opponent is the most liberal free spending legislator at the capital.  He does not believe ‘to spend no more than you make’ JOHN SAMPERI DOES!

He does not believe in “one only borrows what you can afford to pay back’, JOHN SAMPERI DOES!

My opponent does not believe ‘if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. But if it’s broken get rid of it’. JOHN SAMPERI DOES!  My opponent does not believe ‘The more government tries to do, the less it does well’ JOHN SAMPERI DOES!

“I believe the taxpayers of  the 35th district are simply fed up with more and more taxes, less services and nothing but more of the same unless there is new thinking in Hartford.

I plan to bring that COMMON SENSE COMMITMENT TO HARTFORD, Samperi pledged.  No one will campaign harder to bring these messages to the voters than JOHN SAMPERI. 

“I will walk every street in the three towns to bring my message of a COMMON SENSE COMMITMENT TO HARTFORD”, Samperi concluded. 


Paid for by SAMPERI in the 35th, C. Swiss, Treasurer, 30 Pond Meadow Road, Killingworth, Ct. 06419

Egads. Not again! I wonder what party he is running under this time?

Ex Republican We the people wonder what party you stand for now that you call yourself an ex republican! Your remark suggests Democrat but we hate to jump to such drastic conclusions. After all, how anyone can proudly say they re a Democrat today is beyond rationale thinking! John Samperi is making a stand for Government accountability... Taxes do not have to be this high nor do thy have to continue to rise! What is wrong with controlling government growth? Do you think it is appropriate for the government to simply continue to take from residents who are now being forced to work two and maybe three jobs to survive. John is trying to change the status quo...thank god someone has the ba...! I'm sure the ex Republicans don't, as they are too busy making personal remarks towards those people that are trying to make a difference!

Call me a registered Republican for Federal elections (probably because of my business background) and an independent for state and local republicans as I go for the best qualified candidate and not overall ideals. As to taxes. I agree. Not much bang for your buck these days. The article did not say what party John is running under. He has run under the Republican ticket and then as a Better Choice. I thought I asked a legitimate question but if no one can answer it, so be it. As for Democrats, I don't think such broad negative connotation statements are warranted. I think Kathy Iino is doing a great job.

If you keep running and keep losing, what does that make you? Ed Ricciuti

Ed, are you suggesting that if someone continues to lose they should just give up? As a small business guy, Everyday I have to keep pushing my ideas with the hopes of making a sale. Yes, I lose often, but, I never give up. I never give up because there is always the possibility for success. For John, I hope he never gives up as well. You may not like him personally but he wants to make a difference. A difference that gives him personal satisfaction and a difference to give us an opportunity to keep more of our money that we have worked so hard to make.

Dear Ex--the Better Choice candidates were and are all republicans that had a different idea of what a republican should stand for. Mr Samperi has never changed his affiliation or the things he believes deeply in. The Better Choice candidates are all now on the Republican town committee. I hope you will come to a meeting sometime and see what we are all about. First Thurs every month in the Killingworth Library.

I think it makes him the 'little engine that could'!! and he will. Only a loser gives up and goes home. Run, John, run!!
Ex Republican April 22, 2012 at 04:35 PM
I still do not know what party he is running under. It is not a trick question.
Peggie Bushey April 23, 2012 at 04:55 PM
Ex..you are not reading the comment specifically sent to you....John is and always has been and will forever remain a Republican. He is running as a republican as did all the better choice candidates.
George Hedrick May 09, 2012 at 01:29 PM
John has always been a Republican. Winners aren't people who never fail but, people who never quit. Ex, it has always been my personal experience that people who cloak themselves in the vail of annominity derive alot of power, courage, and conviction, nothing could be further from the truth.

I believe in the John Samperis of the world. This is what made the U.S. so great. Robert Rioja
