State Representative Linda Schofield has endorsed John Hampton for State Representative. Schofield is retiring after six years representing Simsbury in the Connecticut General Assembly.
"John Hampton is doubly equipped to represent Simsbury well. As a life-long Simsbury resident and a town public servant of many years -- as a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals, Aging & Disability Commission and Board of Selectmen -- John is acutely attuned to Simsbury residents and their views. In addition, John worked in the legislature as a staffer, so he goes into the job knowing how to get things done there. John is a kind, articulate, smart man whose candidacy I endorse,” said Rep. Schofield.
Hampton, now in his fifth term on the Simsbury Board of Selectmen, declared his candidacy on May 2nd and was nominated by his party on May 23rd.
“I am honored and thrilled to receive Representative Schofield’s endorsement. Linda is an amazing leader and has represented Simsbury well in the state legislature. She has a solid record of fiscal restraint which I intend on continuing if elected,” said Selectman Hampton.
Mr. Hampton also acknowledged Schofield’s bi-partisanship, her attention to her constituents and her skills as a listener and problem solver in thanking her for her support.
“I look forward to campaigning with John and encourage everyone to support him on November 6th,” added Ms. Schofield.
