The Chamber doesn't endorse

Michelle Cook, Democratic candidate in the 65th House District in Torrington, issued a brief press release on Friday to clarify a "mistake" that was made in a campaign mailer she sent to homes in the district.
It had quotes from various individuals endorsing her candidacy, including "Jacque Williams, Northwest Chamber of Commerce."
Williams is a member (one of more than 700) of the Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce, but not a staff member or spokesman for the group.
Cook apologized if the mailer left the impression that the Chamber was endorsing her in some way.
The Chamber of Commerce doesn't endorse political candidates. It sponsored a debate of candidates a few weeks ago, but generally stays on the sidelines when it comes to individual races.
Cook's opponent is incumbent Republican Rep. Anne Ruwet.

Typical, her campaign is a joke. She says she will bring 'change' to Hartford, but like Obama she offers absolutely zeo examples. Hope she's reading!

Makes you wonder what else Cook is lying about. Some people will say or do anything to try and get elected.

It's been non-stop lies and say anything so people will support me. Just so we can send another yes vote to an already too big out of control majority. No thanks.
