Following is a press release we received from the Seger for Senate campaign:
Daniel J. Seger, the Democratic candidate for Connecticut’s Eighth Senatorial District, will appear on two ballot lines this November 6: on the Democratic Party line and on the Connecticut Working Families Party lines. Seger received the endorsement of the Connecticut Working Families Party on September 5.
Dan Seger, who lives in Canton, owns Connecticut Web Services, his own website and graphic design company, based in Canton. Seger has served as a Director of the Canton Chamber of Commerce and is a member of the New Hartford Business Council.
This election marks Seger’s first run for elected office. Dan spent 27 years working in manufacturing in Connecticut, helping to grow New Hartford’s Perry Technology Corporation from its small, ten-employee operation into a state-of-the-art, 110-employee manufacturer of precision aerospace equipment.
The Connecticut Working Families Party, according to their website, states: “Working Families is Connecticut’s fastest growing independent political party. We focus on the issues that matter to all working class and middle class families, like creating good jobs, making healthcare more affordable, quality schools and fair taxes for the middle class. We stand up for the every day families that make Connecticut what it is — not the Wall Street banks, the lobbyists and the CEOs.
Every election year, we examine the records of all the candidates — Democrats, Republicans and independents — and only support those who will stand up for our values, like creating good jobs, making healthcare more affordable, and fair taxes on the middle class.”
Dan Seger is running against the incumbent State Senator, Kevin D. Witkos (R-8) of Canton.
The 8th District is comprised of: Avon, Barkhamsted, Canton, Colebrook, Granby, Hartland, Harwinton, New Hartford, Norfolk, Simsbury and Torrington.
