KILLINGWORTH AT THE STATE CONVENTION
Joining the 169 cities, towns, and boroughs of Connecticut , delegates representing the town of Killingworth attended
the Republican State Convention in Uncasville May 16th and 17th to cast their vote for candidates seeking the
Republican party nominations for the positions of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and other offices within the state.
Proudly representing the town of Killingworth at the State Convention were Killingworth Republican Town Committee
delegates Mike Butler, Debby Butler, Derek Phelps, and David Adametz.
“Killingworth is the biggest little town in Connecticut ”, Killingworth Fire Commissioner and delegation chair Mike
Butler said at the convention. “We may be a small town, but today, our town is the mouse that roared”. Butler , as
Killingworth delegation chair, tallied the votes of the Killingworth delegates and announced them before the election
Tom Foley, who ran unsuccessfully against Dannel Malloy in 2010, received the Republican nomination for governor
by a large majority of Connecticut towns, although candidates Mark Bouton and John McKinney received the support of
enough delegates to allow them to pursue a primary later in the year. The winner of the primary will run on the
Republican ticket for Governor in the state elections to be held in November.
Lori Hopkins-Cavanagh of New London received the Republican nomination for Congresswoman for the second
congressional district, which includes the town of Killingworth . She will be running against current Democratic
Congressman Joe Courtney of Vernon in the November elections.
Also nominated was Secretary of the State candidate Peter Lumaj. A native of Albania , Lumaj escaped to the United
States to avoid political persecution after his father was arrested by the Communist government, and who eventually
died in that country’s notorious forced labor camps. “Never let anyone tell you that America is no longer the land of
opportunity”, Lumaj said during his acceptance speech.
The candidates nominated to be on the Republican ballot in
November are as follows:
Governor: Tom Foley (pending primary).
Lt. Governor: Penny Bacchiacci.
2nd Congressional Representative: Lori Hopkins Cavanagh.
Secretary Of State: Peter Lumaj.
State Treasurer: Tim Herbst.
State Comptroller: Sharon McLaughlin.
Attorney General: Kie Westby
The Killingworth Republican Town Committee invites any
