Connecticut Independent Party Endorses Walczak For 5th District
Bruce Walczak of Newtown has been endorsed by the Independent Party of Connecticut as a candidate for Congress in the 5th district. He will appear on the ballot under the Independent Party line for the November 3 election.
A 30-year resident of Newtown, Walczak has been active in the Independent Party for more than 10 years and is currently secretary of the state Independent Party. He was previously elected to the Newtown Police Commission as the first-ever Independent Party member with the highest number of votes received and served a four-year term ending in 2011.
As chairman of the Independent Party Newtown, Walczak oversaw the party elect ten candidates to local office in 2007.
Michael Telesca, chairman of the Independent Party of Connecticut, stated, “Bruce Walczak has been a long term participant in charitable boards, including the United Way, Junior Achievement, and the Multiple Sclerosis Association, and locally, the Newtown Family Counseling Center, the Newtown Business Advisory, and most recently the president of the Newtown Lions Club. He has had a distinguished career in business having been president of PHH Destination Services, vice president of Prudential Relocation and Real Estate, and currently runs his own consulting firm. He brings a valuable balance of business, entrepreneurial skill, and involvement in important social issues which he will bring with him to the US Congress.”
“I’m pleased to be endorsed for Congress [in the] 5th District,” said Mr. Walczak.
“The Independent Party represents a new and important nonpartisan approach to government. I will be representing first and foremost the people of Connecticut, not a major political party. I intend to work with all members of congress to address the serious issues America currently faces,” Walczak added, “problems that have long been ignored by our representatives in Washington. We must work together to understand these issues such as the economy, health care, immigration, equal rights, gun control, our climate, and Social Security. We can no longer simply kick these problems down the road.”
