Bernier gets endorsement from Woodbury RTC chairman

WOODBURY - Republican hopeful Justin Bernier has received another endorsement from a southern Litchfield County town chairman.

On Tuesday Woodbury Republican Town Committee Chairman Ron Judson endorsed Bernier in his run for the 5th Congressional District. Judson is the thirteenth RTC chairman to endorse the Plainville resident, who hopes to win his party's nomination and run against Democrat U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy.

Judson said that he was impressed with Bernier’s military service in Afghanistan: “I support Justin Bernier for Congress. With his military service and background, Justin understands what it takes to keep Americans safe at home and abroad," Judson said in a press release.

Bernier is a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, where he served as a military intelligence officer. Bernier also served as Executive Director of the state’s Office of Military Affairs under Governor M. Jodi Rell before stepping down to run for Congress.

Bernier said he was honored to win Judson’s endorsement: “I am proud to have the support of local RTC leaders like Ron Judson, because they represent the true grassroots, boots on the ground that will win this election in November.”

Bernier has also recieved endorsements from other area Republicans, including town committees in Plymouth, Goshen, Norfolk, Bethlehem, Burlington, Canton, Farmington and Washington.
