Incumbent State Rep. Jack Hennessy’s opponent, City Councilman Marcus Brown, has his fundraising wrapped up. Thursday night Hennessy and friends will host a fundraiser at Massimo Pizzeria on Boston Avenue.
Hennessy and Brown are participating in Connecticut’s Citizens Election Program of publicly funded races.
Candidates raise small dollar amounts to qualify for larger public grants. Aspirants can apply for grants after party conventions.
The Dem party endorsement for Connecticut’s 127 State House District will take place May 17 at Testo’s Restaurant. The territory covers the North End and a piece of the West Side.
