Dan Seger Knocks On First 1,000 Doors In Bid For 8th District Senate Seat
The following is a press release we received from Collin Good, Field Director of the ‘Seger For Senate’ Campaign. Dan Seger is running for the 8th District Senate Seat, which includes New Hartford:
Daniel J. Seger, candidate for Connecticut’s Senate District 8, has knocked on 1,000 doors in the district. Seger, who received the endorsement of the Democratic Party on May 21, has been working with a team of volunteers to knock on doors and speak with voters.
Seger, who has lived in the 8th district since 1972, retired earlier this year from Perry Technology Corporation in New Hartford after 27 years. Seger has since created his own small business, a website and graphic design company called Connecticut Web Services, which he runs from his home in Canton. His company is a member of the New Hartford Business Council and the Canton Chamber of Commerce. He is a former director of the Chamber, serving for two terms on that board.
Seger is running on a platform of job creation, economic recovery, affordable healthcare, improving public education, and protecting small businesses. He has connected with voters at the door and at public events in the towns of New Hartford, Barkhamsted, Simsbury, Torrington, Harwinton, Norfolk, Canton and Avon. Seger plans to visit all eleven district towns within the coming weeks.
Seger is running against State Senator Kevin Witkos (R-8), a two-term Senator who retired this past spring as a State Trooper. Shortly thereafter Witkos resigned as Ranking Member on the Energy Committee of the General Assembly after taking a job with Northeast Utilities, parent company of Connecticut Light and Power.
Seger has chosen to participate in the state’s Citizens’ Election Program, working to collect endorsements from at least 300 in-district citizens. The campaign looks to complete their fundraising goals by the end of July.
When asked about his campaign, Seger said: “Even though I have lived in district towns for over 40 years, getting out and meeting people has been key to understanding residents’ needs. Our 11 district towns are all unique because the 8th district is so large. Issues in the east end towns vary greatly from those found in the west. I look forward to speaking with many more people over the upcoming months to better understand how I can serve all of our communities best.”
