Theresa Madonna—candidate for State Senate in Connecticut’s 18th District—announced plans today for four debates with her opponent, Andrew Maynard. Madonna said she called Maynard on Friday and suggested that the two meet four times in October, in Groton, Plainfield, Stonington, and Griswold, to discuss issues important to this year’s campaign. Maynard accepted Madonna’s challenge.
When asked about the four debates, Madonna said: “I look forward to the opportunity to share my ideas about what is best for the State and Southeastern Connecticut. One-party rule has cost this district dearly over the past two years in the form of a record tax increase, ballooning debt, and significant job loss. Unfortunately, Senator Maynard is part of that problem, and while I’m grateful that he has agreed to these debates, I think voters will see that the senator and I have very different ideas about the role of government.”
The two campaigns will work together to plan the forthcoming debates and look forward to hearing about the questions and concerns of the people in the district. More information will be available as dates, times, and locations are determined in the coming weeks.
