Tonight, the League of Women Voters is hosting a debate in the Middletown Council Chambers at City Hall between the two candidates for Connecticut’s 100th Assembly District, which includes parts of Middletown and the neighboring towns of Middlefield and Durham.
Democrat Matt Lesser, a rising leader in the progressive community and former Wesleyan student, squares off against incumbent Republican Ray Kalinowski, a traditional conservative and former secret service agent in the Nixon White House. The differences between Lesser, 25, and Kalinowski, 68, extend far beyond the age gap, including substantive disagreements on education, the environment, and major social issues.
Tonight’s debate at 6:45 is a great opportunity to show your support and hear straight from the candidates what their visions are for the future of the 100th District.
