Four members of the Connecticut General Assembly who all recently completed their first terms in office, will talk about “If I Only Knew: Lessons from Campaigning to Holding Office” in a discussion presented by the University of Hartford’s Governor M. Jodi Rell Center for Public Service on Monday, Sept. 30, at 7:30 p.m. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in Wilde Auditorium in the Harry Jack Gray Center, on the University of Hartford campus, 200 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford.
Speaking at the program will be Rep. John Hampton (D-Simsbury), Sen. Art Linares (R-Westbrook), Rep. Brandon McGee (D-Hartford), and Rep. Lezlye Zupkus (R-Prospect), who were all first elected to the State Legislature in 2012.
Marilyn Rossetti, a former member of the Hartford City Council and a University of Hartford alumna, will serve as moderator of this discussion. (Note: This past November, Rossetti published an opinion article in the Hartford Courant providing advice to newly elected public officials.)
Hampton graduated from the University of Hartford in 1990. Also, Rossetti earned an associate’s degree from the University in 1998.
