Danbury Firefighter Jeff Tomchik has thrown his hat into the race for State Rep. in the 138th district.
Tomchik, a veteran of the city’s fire department and current president of the Danbury Firefighters Local 801 union, filed papers with the State Elections Enforcement Commission on March 26th to run for State Rep in the 138th as a Democrat.
The 138th district is an open seat as Jan Geigler announced that she will not seek re-election after winning the election for City Clerk last November.
Danbury GOP school member Michael Furgeson announced his intentions to replace Geigler last month.
