Blumenthal in Kent


KENT—U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal and other top Connecticut Democrats hit the stump in Kent Saturday for First Selectman candidate Lynn Mellis Worthington, Selectman Glenn Sanchez and the rest of the Democratic slate.

“The people who care about Kent should be voting for Lynn and Glenn,” Blumenthal told an audience gathered on Golden Falcon Field on Main Street for an ice-cream social sponsored by the Kent Democratic Town Committee.

Blumenthal, who had just returned from a trip to the Middle East, cited Worthington’s support for more electric-vehicle chargers in Kent and praised her commitment to “more intelligent” land use. “Once you lose land to development, you ain’t going to get it back,” the senator said.

Blumenthal also noted Worthington’s support for increased access to broadband internet.

“People who think this election doesn’t matter—it matters. Every election matters. Elections have consequences,” Blumenthal said. “We know they have consequences because we have seen the consequences at the highest level of government.”

Blumenthal was followed by U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes, who urged voters to come out “to make sure this whole slate wins.”

The crowd also heard from Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz and State Treasurer Erick Russell.
