FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
‘Trumbull, Monroe and Bridgeport Deserve Moore’
State Senate Candidate Qualifies For August Primary
Pledges Government Reform, A Voice For The Voiceless
Marilyn Moore who six years ago came within a whisker of defeating Anthony Musto for Connecticut’s 22nd State Senate seat representing Bridgeport, Trumbull and Monroe on Monday qualified for a Democratic primary rematch obtaining the 15 percent delegate support required under party rules.
Ms. Moore is the Founder and CEO of the Breast Cancer Program for Women, Witness Project that provides education and screening services to detect breast cancer.
She has already garnered sufficient contributions to qualify for a grant under Connecticut’s Citizens Election Program of publicly financed races, an early feat validating strong and committed support excited about a fresh perspective and weary of politics as usual.
“It is time for new energy, new vitality and real leadership” says Ms. Moore who vowed to take the fight to every part of the district in anticipation of the primary election August 12. “I'm running for State Senate because the people of the district deserve a state senator who's in touch with their concerns. We need an independent-minded reformer who knows how to work with people to get things done.”
“You're not in touch when you violate the Bridgeport City Charter to promote political patronage, you're not in touch when you're one of two senators voting to release the tragic images of the Sandy Hook children, you're not in touch when you support the illegal takeover of city schools, you're not in touch when classroom teachers are blamed for systemic failures, you’re not in touch when you water down campaign finance laws in support of dark money interests, you’re not in touch when you know incorrect information is being disseminated to your constituents regarding the location and time of the 22nd State Senate District convention and you stand by and watch it.”
Last September Ms. Moore managed the campaigns of three Bridgeport school board challengers who defeated the party endorsed candidates, a message from Democratic primary voters unhappy about intrusive policies that included taking away voters rights to elect board of education members.
“As a healthcare advocate I see up close the struggles, journeys and triumphs of courageous women. I pledge to be there -- whether jobs, education, government reform, health care, or a voice for the voiceless -- to help constituents transform struggles and journeys into triumphs. I will be a bridge builder for the people of Trumbull, Monroe and Bridgeport.”
