Speaker of the House Chris Donovan will tour 5th District to officially announce Congressional candidacy

It’s not exactly a secret that Speaker of the House Chris Donovan, the veteran Meriden Democrat, is looking to fill the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives that will be vacated by Rep. Chris Murphy, who will seek the U.S. Senate position held since 1989 by Joe Lieberman. He’s been raising money, but what with the union-concession troubles followed by the Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irene, there hasn’t been a convenient time to schedule a district-wide series of announcements. Well, this week is the one. So Donovan could be courting a swarm of locusts, a rain of toads or some other natural disaster.
Anyway, this week he’ll visit the five major cities to talk about jobs, education, transportation and infrastructure, Medicare and Social Security, according to his campaign. Here’s the schedule:
11:00 AM – Torrington
Coe Memorial Park, Corner of Litchfield St. and South Main St.
5:00 PM – Waterbury
Nino’s Restaurant, 91 Scott Road
5:00 PM – Danbury
Danbury Public Library (front steps), 170 Main St.
5:00 PM – Meriden HQ Opening
Meriden Headquarters, 5 Colony St.
10:00 AM – New Britain
Franklin Square Park, Downtown New Britain
