Potter accepts his “Oscar” from supporters



Justin Potter, candidate for the Senate in the 30th District, was cheered March 10 at a meeting of supporters. The Democratic Coalition of the Northwest Corner, local office holders, previous office holders, and other 30th District officials heard an introduction by state Rep. Maria Horn, followed by the candidate, who spoke about his life growing up and working on local farms.

Bringing his history up to date, he talked about his work as head of Kent Affordable Housing and the large role housing plays in the needs and health of a community.  

The event, taking place just hours before the 2024 Oscar Awards, picked up on that theme and participants applauded as candidate Potter was given his “Oscar” and cut into a large carrot cake (compliments of Sharon Selectman Lynn Kearcher).  

Potter thanked his supporters and promised to work hard on the campaign trail.
