Democrat Michalik opens campaign headquarters

State Senate candidate Rob Michalik was joined by dozens of supporters for his fall campaign kick-off event on Saturday, Sept. 13. Among those in attendance were U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal and Connecticut State Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney.

“I was thrilled with the turnout for our fall kick-off on Saturday,” said Michalik via a press release from his campaign. “I am working every day to share my vision for creating jobs, holding the line on spending and taxes, and supporting our local public schools. I am pleased to have so many others who have pledged to join me in that effort.”

“Rob will be a strong voice for the people of the 31st district,” said Blumenthal, according to the press release. “With his experience, particularly in economic development, he has the background and qualifications to serve his constituents well. I was excited to join with him on Saturday for the fall kick-off of his campaign.”

“Rob’s experience working with small businesses and his deep roots in the community make him the right choice to fight on behalf middle class families in the State Senate,” said Senate Majority Leader Martin M. Looney in Michalik’s press release. “Judging by the number of enthusiastic supporters who came out for Rob on Saturday, his campaign is off to a great start.”

The campaign headquarters will now be open everyday until the election, said the candidate’s press release.
