The Independent candidate for the Connecticut General Assembly today announced that he has received word from the Connecticut Secretary of State's office of Elections that he has surpassed the necessary signatures of electors to be placed on the public ballot this November. Mr Bevilacqua, an experienced public administrator is standing for election this November 6th in the historic town which stands at the crossroads of Fairfield and New Haven counties. The polling places include St Joseph's Roman Catholic High School, Hillcrest Elementary School and Tashua School. Mr Bevilacqua's principled and conservative politics seeks to find consensus amongst the varied party factions, his independent campaign creates a great opportunity to build coalitions usually more obsessed with partisan interests.
"This is exciting news for the people!" said Bevilacqua "The citizens from Trumbull finally have the opportunity to vote for experience and competence in the fall election." "The extreme political divisions that have become politics as usual, neither have the interests of good government nor the people in mind." "In order to win good policies and to represent the people, we must build coalitions of like minded leaders, dedicated to working for the people and not special factions [regardless of their party registration]."
In order to create voting majorities, an essential part of politics is taking controversial positions for the good of the society, by building support among leaders united in common purpose. The candidate submitted more than 80 signatures from enthusiatic voters thirsting for political change.
"Most people are Independent by nature. That is why American's have a can-do attitude, we let nothing stand in our way." concluded Bevilacqua
Mr Bevilacqua, a Republican and government administrator by profession, previously served as the spokesman of the Bridgeport City Council and has made 'substantive values based education reform,' constitutionalism and freedom from oppressive taxes, achievable platform goals. This campaign for the 123rd district is the first attempt at elected office for the longtime Democrat who once served as National Committeeman for the Young Democrats of America based in Washington, D.C.
