WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) – Cities and towns of Connecticut might get lost in the 2022 campaign as the focus is on the races for governor, senate and congress. The mayors and first selectmen are very busy this year.
Dennis House sat down with the mayor of a Hartford suburb who has a well-known last name and a big vision for his historic town.
Michael Rell, a Republican, and son of former Governor Jodi Rell, was also asked about his party’s chances in November.
RELL: Governor Lamont has been great for the town of Wethersfield. You know, we’ve had a number of press conferences together.
DENNIS: Would you vote for him?
RELL: Would I vote for him? To be honest with you, you know, I think he’s doing a really good job for the state of Connecticut. He went he got in and a very difficult time. I think he’s managed the state well, but I would like to see balance maybe at the top of the ticket, maybe the ticket, maybe a little closer balance in the house and Senate.
DENNIS: Is that an endorsement of Lamont when you’re Republican?
RELL: I am a Republican. So let’s just say that I, I hope the best for whoever wins, that they serve the state of Connecticut, the best that they can.
