Normally I find it difficult to connect local political happenings to Wesleyan, but when a prior Wesleyan student (and present member of the Wesleyan community) runs for State Representative, the connection is obvious. Matt Lesser received the Democratic Nomination for State Representative in Middlefield last night–a unanimous decision–and afterward told me a little bit about his campaign:
His campaign is being managed by a two fellow Wesleyan students, Mike Pernick ’10 and Saul Carlin ’09. I have posted a more detailed write-up of last night’s convention at my vanity project, and Matt Lesser has more information about his candidacy at www.mattlesser.com. Prior Wesleying posts about Matt Lesser can be read here.
