“A Connecticut Party of West Hartford” is excited to welcome Ross Jacobs to the campaign slate. Jacobs will be a candidate for the Board of Education and joins the Town Council slate of Lee Gold, Mark Merritt, Rick Bush, and Roni Rodman. 

“I’m extremely happy to have someone of Ross’s caliber join our campaign. He will bring solutions, ideas, passion and action that we are striving to bring the voters of West Hartford this fall,” said Mark Merritt, candidate and campaign chairman.

Jacobs and his wife, Kristyn Rosen-Jacobs were married in 2018 and Jacobs has lived in West Hartford since 1998.

As a parent in the community, he has a vested interest in the needs of all children.

“A Connecticut Party of West Hartford” is a party that reflects fiscal conservative values and promotes dialogue on social issues. We will not beholden to the principals of the current political parties. We want to be the party of strategic consolidation, constructions – cranes in the skyline, open and equal education to modernize the progress made to date.  Our community is diverse and engaged thus requires an alternative view on how we should approach governing.  The current dynamics of our national and state political landscape needs a break from the political divide and have a party/voice that is based on moderate perspectives, respect for different views and creates unity, rational alternative.
