Republicans have primaries for 1st, 2nd Congressional Districts
Republicans vying to unseat U.S. Reps. Joseph D. Courtney and John B. Larson must first emerge victorious on Tuesday, as each of the endorsed Republicans face primary challengers.
The contest to challenge Larson for the 1st District seat pits West Hartford Town Councilwoman Mary Fay against military veteran James Griffin.
Fay, the endorsed candidate, touts her life-long commitment to the district, growing up in East Hartford, where her mother was a public school teacher, before moving to West Hartford and serving on the Town Council.
She considers herself “fiercely independent,” willing to vote for what she believes is in the best interest of the district’s constituents, rather than along party lines.
“I’m not just a party hack,” Fay said, noting her bipartisan history on the West Hartford council.
If elected, her focus would be first on growing the state’s economy that had yet to fully recover from the 2008 recession even before the novel coronavirus pandemic. As a product of East Hartford public schools, she said education would also be a priority, particularly providing life skills, such as budgeting, and vocational lessons, in high schools.
While she said police officers who violate the law should be held accountable, Fay lamented the state’s new law aimed at addressing police misconduct, calling it “very appalling” and said that officers should be respected.
