Manchester Election 2012: Meet the Candidates

The City of Village Charm does not lack for representation in Hartford, as residents will decide the fate of candidates vying for one senatorial and four house district seats on Tuesday.

The 27.7-mile space that is Manchester is a virtual pie cut into uneven quarters when it comes to the number of representatives that act for this community of roughly 58,000 in Hartford.

And although there are four that stand for Manchester, among other communities, in the House Chambers, there is just one state senator that advocates on behalf of the Silk City.

On Tuesday, voters here will decide whether to return the incumbents to their respective seats, or put their trust in someone new. Here are the candidates from which they will choose:

  • Candidates for 4th District State Senator are: Cheri Ann Pelletier and Steve Cassano.
  • Candidates for 9th District State Representative are: Rudy Hrubala and Jason Rojas.
  • Candidates for 11th District State Representative are: Thomas Ogar and Timothy Larson.
  • Candidates for 12th District State Representative are: Timothy M. Devanney and Geoff Luxenberg.
  • Candidates for 13th District State Representative are: Mark Tweedie and Joe Diminico.

MUST read: "Support for Kill List and NDAA make Obama and Romney Unfit for Office" http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/reawakening-liberty/2012/nov/2/support-kill-list-and-ndaa-make-obama-and-romney-u/ Make a special note to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party Presidential candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. It is a violation of the 1st Amendament rights of third party candidates, and a violation of the free speech rights of every American, for their voices to be silenced. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1
