Our champion in Hartford


It was a difficult decision to retire as your state senator, but one made much easier seeing Paul Cicarella become a candidate to represent our great district in Hartford. Paul Cicarella has my full support in running for state senate. He is the most capable, hard-working and passionate candidate to represent our community. He is a father, small business owner, coach and community volunteer who has the energy and the vision we need to improve our state and make sure the needs of people in our district are heard loud and clear. He will be an unparalleled champion and voice for us all in Hartford. 

State Sen. Len Fasano

Capone for Senate


I endorse April Capone for the 34th State Senate seat. April is a former, two-term Mayor of East Haven, and has worked in state government. With this knowledge and experience, April is uniquely qualified to make an immediate impact to enrich our lives.

Originally from East Haven and now living in North Haven, April has a firm understanding of area needs. As Mayor, April worked to overcome economic adversity, and she will do the same during these challenging times.

We are coping with unprecedented circumstances; all the more reason we need April representing the 34th District.

Backing Grant


I am writing in support of Kathy Grant for State Representative. As a working mother, she has encountered challenges that many North Haven residents are experiencing. She has been a dedicated community volunteer for many years. I know she will work tirelessly for the people of North Haven.

One area of concern for Kathy is the availability of affordable healthcare. Her interest in public health issues includes addressing the needs of an aging population and ensuring that programs for the elderly and veterans continue to be funded. She will work to improve access for preventative care.

I believe Kathy Grant would be a great representative.

Ruth Bryant

Compassionate, pragmatic


I would like to take this opportunity to express my unconditional support for Kathy Grant, who is running for State Representative. Kathy would do a terrific job representing North Haven. Among her many attributes: She is responsive, hard-working, compassionate, pragmatic, and tirelessly serves her entire community. North Haven would be well-served having such an able leader. Please vote Kathy Grant on Nov. 3.

Hard worker


Kathy Grant has been a dedicated and passionate community volunteer in areas of concern to parents, seniors, veterans and women. Her academic background includes a bachelor’s degree in political science and sociology, with work experience in both government and the private sector. Additionally, as a single parent, she has met the rigorous task of raising three children with success and, through this and involvement in the PTA, knows the North Haven school system well. She possesses a concert of experience, hard-work, passion, knowledge and first-hand civic involvement that will make her an excellent State Representative to serve the 87th Assembly District.

Alden Mead

She’s ready


Having served as North Haven’s State Representative for 14 years, I encourage every North Haven voter to join me in supporting Kathy Grant for State Representative. A parent, professional and advocate, Kathy Grant will fight for us and get results on issues that matter – quality education for our kids, quality health care for our families, and ensuring everyone pays their fair share. As a member of the majority, she also will be inside the room when decisions get made. She’s smart, asks tough questions, and works hard – what we need in a State Representative.

No loyalty


The only sure thing we know about the North Haven Democratic Town Committee is “Today they cut the cloth to fit the pattern and tomorrow they cut the pattern to fit the cloth.” One year ago they said I should not be allowed to run for Fire Commissioner because I was there too long (24 years). I hope our great Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro and equally great senator Martin Looney – my dear, lifelong friends – are listening. No loyalty.
