Eastman First Selectman Announces Run for Congress

Republican Tom Herrmann, First Selectman of Easton and businessman, announced his intentions to run for Congress against Democrat Jim Himes today.

"Our country is face with a perfect storm of challenges - high levels of unemployment, a struggling economy, staggering national debt and an undisciplined, out-of-touch Congress that aims to solve these problems by spending even more money that Americans don't have," said Herrmann.

Herrmann presented a detailed plan of action in addition to highlighting his experience and qualifications. He has lived and worked in the 4th Congressional District virtually his whole life. Herrmann believes that we need a Congressman that will serve the people, solve current problems, as well as provide for a prosperous and safe future; he hopes to be that Congressman.

Herrmann has over thirty years of experience saving and creating jobs, revitalizing failing businesses and building new ones, streamlining budgets and delivering results.

Herrmann faced five other Republicans before he earned the nomination to campaign against Himes.

Herrmann states that polling data demonstrates that Himes is vulnerable and that a well-funded and well organized Republican can win.

Herrmann is serving his second term as the First Selectman of Easton.
