In response to Cynthia Jennings’ stepping down from the Hartford City Council:
Lindsay Farrell, state director, CT Working Families Party:
“ Cynthia Jennings earned the nomination of the Working Families Party and was elected by the voters of Hartford as a City Councilwoman. Given that the voters elected a WFP nominee, we plan to honor their votes by looking into our local membership to fill the vacancy. We hope for a process free of political vengeance and maneuvering.
"In her time on the Hartford City Council, Cynthia has earned a reputation as a champion of environmental justice. We have been proud to work with her, and we look forward to continuing to build a stronger, fairer Hartford with her WFP successor.”
