“West Hartford continues to receive recognition for being a great place to live, work, and raise a family. That is no small part because of the leadership of our Democratic majority on Town Council and the Board of Education,” stated DTC Chair John Bailey. “Leading up to Election Day, our Democratic candidates and volunteers will work tirelessly across West Hartford to earn every vote.”

“We are excited about our four new candidates: Barry Walters for Town Council and Jason Gagnon, LaToya Fernandez, and Shannon Marimón for Board of Education,” added DTC Vice-Chair and Town Council candidate Tiffani McGinnis. “All of these candidates bring valuable experience and fresh perspectives.  If elected, we know they will listen to the community and work hard to deliver results for West Hartford residents.”
