The Independent Party of Connecticut endorsed Rep. Bill Simanski at its convention in Danbury. With this endorsement Rep. Simanski will appear on the ballot twice, on the Republican line and the Independent Line. To qualify for the endorsement Bill’s campaign had to collect 104 signatures from registered voters in the 62nd District including Barkhamsted, Granby, Hartland and New Hartford. The campaign ultimately submitted over 160 signatures that were verified by town clerks. There are 309 registered Independent voters in the 62nd District.
“I am proud to have the Independent Party supporting my re-election as State Representative for the 62nd District,” said Simanski. Since being sworn in, I have supported common sense measures regardless of which party proposed them. This past term I was proud to work in a bi-partisan manner to enact important measures such as the spending cap and caps on borrowing.”
