Brian Becker likes his job as your state representative, and he wants to keep it.
The two-term Democrat this week announced his re-election campaign for the 19th District, which includes the towns of West Hartford, Farmington and Avon.
“I have worked hard to serve the people of the 19th district every day and I would like the opportunity to continue to do so,” Becker said in a press release. “In my short time in the legislature, I have focused on creating jobs, saving energy, preserving municipal aid, and protecting those least able to help themselves. If re‐elected, I would continue to focus on those areas.”
Becker says he has collected enough donations to qualify for public financing through the Citizens’ Election Program, and will file an application with the State Election Enforcement Commission after Democrats hold their nominating convention this weekend.
“I am grateful that many of my constituents have generously stepped forward to support my re-election campaign,” Becker said. "By getting fundraising out of the way early, I can focus on hitting the campaign trail to meet with my constituents.”About Brian Becker
