Who’s Supporting Sean?
Sean has already earned a number of top endorsements from elected officials and other leaders across Connecticut. Here’s what some of them have to say:
Rep. David Arconti (D-109)
“Sean listened to our community and shared his plan to turn things around. I’m convinced he’s the leader we need to launch us into a new era of growth and opportunity.”
Melody Currey (former State Representative and Mayor of East Hartford)
“Sean has the passion, the drive, and the skills to create new jobs and opportunities here in Connecticut. I’ve known Sean for many years and had the privilege of working with him when he served as Commissioner of the Department of Veterans Affairs. He knows how to get things done even with difficult budgets—and without sacrificing the care and services people need. Given the challenges we face with our budget, the pension crisis, and our economy, I can think of no better person to lead us forward and chart a new future for families in Connecticut than Sean.”
Sen. Steve Cassano (D-4)
“I’ve known Sean for years, and have always found him to be a dedicated, honest leader committed to making a difference. It’s been a privilege to stand beside him as one of his earliest supporters. After seeing how he helped improve veterans housing and care while running our state’s VA—even after getting his budget cut year after year—I knew Sean was the right choice to lead Connecticut.”
Sen. Cathy Osten (D-19)
“We need a leader like Sean. He’s shown time and time again—through his service to his country, his leadership at Pratt, and his time at the VA—that he’s committed to serving others, not furthering his own ambitions.”
Rep. Pat Boyd (D-50)
“Sean brings a new style of leadership to Connecticut, and he knows how to get things done. Too often, when people talk about the challenges facing our state, they mean the challenges facing our cities. We need a leader who recognizes that our entire state—including our small towns and communities—have problems that can’t be ignored. Sean gets it. He knows we need jobs in Hartford and jobs in Pomfret. And he’s the only candidate with a plan to put our entire state back to work.
