Paul Cicarella, who is running as a Republican in his bid for the 34th District State Senate seat, has earned the endorsement of the state's Independent Party.
"I want to thank the Independent Party of Connecticut for recognizing my commitment to work hard and serve our district as a strong voice for all people," said Cicarella. "I believe the best public servants and lawmakers are those who truly want to work for everybody. Our state needs leaders who will listen to all voices, who are not afraid to reach across the aisle and who will fight for common sense solutions to create opportunities for all people. I am honored that the Independent Party of Connecticut recognizes that I am committed to these goals. I will always put people above partisan politics."
Cicarella is a small business owner and former law enforcement officer who grew up in East Haven and currently lives in North Haven with his wife Christy, who works as a nurse, their two children, who attend North Haven public schools, and their bulldogs.
After serving as a corrections officer, Cicarella founded Advanced Investigations, LLC, a private investigations agency. He is also the owner of National Bug Sweep and Advanced Installations, and serves as president of the CT Private Investigators Association and director of the National Council of Investigation and Security Services.
The 34th District includes the towns of Durham, East Haven, North Haven and Wallingford.
