Navy Veteran Angel Fernadez Giving Incumbent a Run for His Money

Candidate Angel Fernandez for the 100th District
Unlike our incumbent state representative Matt Lesser, who seems “proud” of everything he touches, challenger Angel Fernandez, the first Hispanic to run in this district, is a humble man who considers it a privilege and an honor to engage in public service.


 Angel is a retired US Navy man, Master at Arms Second Class. Angel was part of an elite anti-terrorist team. He served in Desert Storm and was deployed four times to Iraq and Afghanistan. He served 19 years before being retired, due to injuries he received in combat. He takes seriously, his oath to “uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies”, and as our representative in the General Assembly, will continue to fulfill that oath and protect the rights of all citizens.
Angel is active in our community. He is Deputy Director of Emergency Management in Middletown. He has served in this position for five years. He is also an active member of the PTA, serves on his child’s school advisory board and is the Executive Director of the 65th Infantry Historical Society.
Growing up in Hartford’s urban north end, Fernandez saw and experienced first-hand, the day to day struggles of low income and middle class families. He now works in a priority school district with at-risk children.
Angel is the owner of a small security consulting business.  Angel is aware of how the state’s current economic policies and taxes strangle small business, interfering with the development of new business and curtailing the growth of current business.
 As our representative, Angel Fernandez will work to reverse the 371 new taxes Gov. Malloy and the Democrats have imposed on us. Reaching across the aisle, he will keep the federal government out of local education, resist unfunded mandates, whether they are from the state or federal government, and work to implement sensible policies to help returning veterans reintegrate into our communities.
 On November 4th, I'll cast my ballot for Angel Fernandez, a man who says what he means and means what he says; a true man of the people. I urge you to join me in doing so.
