It’s game on between incumbent State Rep. Jack Hennessy and City Councilman Marcus Brown who has been endorsed by party regulars in the predominantly North End 127 State House District.
Hennessy, the longest-serving member of Bridgeport’s legislative delegation, has qualified for the August 9th primary.
From the Hennessy campaign:
Jack Hennessy announced today that Democratic Registrar Patricia Howard notified him he qualified onto the ballot for the August 9th Primary within 24 hours of his petitions being submitted to the Registrar.
Hennessy is seeking re-election to the State House of Representatives for Bridgeport’s 127th Assembly District. “I would like to thank my constituents for their overwhelming support for my re-election. We gathered the required 282 signatures in just 8 days, demonstrating my campaign is powered by the people, not political powerbrokers.”
Hennessy and his team were able to engage hundreds of voters in a condensed timeframe to discuss the concerns and issues that matter to them while also allowing Hennessy an opportunity to share what he has accomplished to better their daily lives.
While speaking directly with his constituents, Hennessy heard time and time again “We have your back, Jack” which will serve as his inspiration as his re-election effort moves into the next phase.
“I look forward to going door-to-door over the next two months speaking directly with my constituents whom I value, respect and serve,” said Hennessy.
