From the Wilton Bulletin: Wilton Democrats host candidates at spring breakfast May 19
By Justin Reynolds
Former U.S. Senate candidate Ned Lamont, Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, congressional candidate Jim Himes, and State Rep. Jim Shapiro are coming to town.
The Wilton Democratic Town Committee will be holding its annual breakfast fund-raiser on Saturday, May 19. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Trackside and should last about two hours.
“We’re lucky to have these people commit,” said Ted Hoffstatter, the Wilton DTC chair. “This is a great chance for people to meet Jim Himes, who’s going to run against Chris Shays in two years.” Mr. Hoffstatter said there might be some other guests, too, who have yet to confirm.
“We want to invite a wider variety of people, not just hard-core Dems, but also those not affiliated with either party. Even Repubs who aren’t happy with the status quo,” Mr. Hoffstatter said. “We want to get some new Democrats in there, too, some new, younger blood.”
The event will be catered with poached eggs, fruit salad, muffins and juice. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for high school and college students. Information: Ted Hoffstatter at 451-5049.
