Orange First Selectman, Jim Zeoli, has strongly endorsed Dan DeBarba for state representative of the 114th district.
Zeoli said, “Connecticut is facing serious economic challenges. Our state budget is in crisis, and now our economy has been crippled by the COVID-19 Pandemic. I believe that Dan is the most qualified candidate to address these challenges. Dan is a proven leader who has actual experience in balancing multi-million-dollar budgets. As a healthcare executive and small business owner, he has the experience we need to rebuild our economy.” Zeoli continued, “Dan will be a strong advocate for the 114th district. As his First Selectman, I am proud to endorse him. I hope you will all join me in voting for Dan in November.”
