Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) endorsed Matt Blumenthal for State Representative. Matt Blumenthal is the Democratic candidate running for State Representative, 147th District, which includes neighborhoods in Stamford and Darien.

“Connecticut needs young leaders like Matt Blumenthal, who bring fresh thinking and common-sense solutions to the challenges our communities and state face,” said Himes. “Matt is the champion our small businesses and working families need fighting in Hartford on their behalf. He will stand up for our values and our future here and in Hartford.”

Blumenthal, a veteran, trial attorney and community volunteer, has earned a reputation for fighting for others. He commanded a rifle platoon in Afghanistan as an Infantry Officer in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. As an attorney, Blumenthal represents people who are victims of negligence, misconduct, and violations of their civil rights.

“I am grateful and honored to have Congressman Himes’s support,” said Matt Blumenthal. “I will work tirelessly to ensure that Stamford, Darien and Connecticut continue to represent our shared values and remain great places to live and work.”
