Matt Lesser Gets State Rep. Nomination

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.

Updated [2008-05-22]: Changed to more accurately describe Matt’s student status.

    I updated the post. I didn’t mean to cause any confusion. At the time I wrote the post, I felt that it was simplest to describe Matt as a Wesleyan student even though he is not currently enrolled. I was thinking that his situation is along the lines of Ashley Casale ’10 who AFAIK was not enrolled in the Fall ’07 semester but was still considered a Wesleyan student.Apologies for any incorrect implications from my original wording.

    The post is incorrect – it should be updated to say that Matt attended Wesleyan and is part of the Wesleyan community, but he is not currently a student.

    I’m confused. Is Matt Lesser a current Wesleyan student? One Wesleying post said he’s 25 and used to attend Wesleyan. Other’s say he’s class of ’09. He’s not in the directory… ???
