Michalik opens campaign headquarters Saturday

Democrat Rob Michalik announced that the kick-off of his fall campaign for State Senate will be held at 430 North Main St. in Bristol at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13. U.S Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) will be on hand for the event, as will other local Democratic candidates on the November ballot.

Michalik will be running against Republican Henri Martin for the 31st district seat vacated by Republican Jason Welch, who has opted not to run this year.

“I look forward to having residents from all five towns in the 31st senate district – Bristol, Harwinton, Plainville, Plymouth, and Thomaston – join me in working together to ensure a better future for our community,” said Michalik, according to a press release. “Anyone who wishes to help with the campaign, or simply to learn about our plans to strengthen the middle-class and grow the economy, is welcome to stop by our campaign headquarters on Sept. 13.”

“Rob is an ardent advocate for consumer rights and growing our economy. He will be a strong voice for the people of the 31st district,” said Blumenthal in the press release. “With his experience, particularly in economic development, he has the background and qualifications to serve his constituents well. I am excited to join with him and other local candidates for this kick-off event.”

The headquarters for Michalik are at 430 North Main St., Bristol, next to Super Natural.
