Fairfield Republicans endorse candidate for state representative

On Tuesday, May 22, Fairfield Republicans unanimously endorsed Chris DeSanctis as the GOP’s candidate for State Representative in the 133rd District.

“I am honored to have received unanimous support to run for State Representative. There are many important issues that need reform,” DeSanctis said, “but at this moment, none is as critical as lowering our high cost of living, controlling unnecessary state spending and creating employment opportunities in Connecticut.”

He said Connecticut citizens work longer to cover their tax burden for the entire year than residents of any other state nationally.

“The majority party in Hartford, which has controlled our state legislature for decades, has not led the way to change this unwanted distinction – in fact they created it. As State Representative, I will work hard to bring common sense back to Hartford by advancing the idea that government — just like individuals — should spend no more than it makes.”

DeSanctis appointed the following individuals to his campaign team: Peter Ambrose, campaign co-chairman and RTM member, District 2; Stanley Morten, campaign co-chairman and Connecticut Republican Party State Central Committee member; Joe DeMartino, treasurer and RTM member, District 4; Joe Palmer, RTM deputy minority leader, District 9; Sue Dow, former Fairfield Board of Education representative; Dana Kery, RTM member, District 8; Kathryn L. Braun, RTM member, District 8; Rich Santalesa, former RTM member; and Erin Harrison French, former RTM member and campaign press secretary.

DeSanctis works as an adjunct professor at Sacred Heart University’s Department of Government and Politics and Norwalk Community College’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Department, and as a Headmaster of a private school.

At Sacred, he was honored with a Teaching and Service Award by Gary Rose, the department chairman.

DeSanctis’ public service experience extends back to the late 1990s when he served as a policy and communications aide to the former mayor of Jersey City, N.J.

In 2006, DeSanctis was appointed by Gov. Jodi Rell to the Metro North-New Haven Rail Council and also served on Connecticut’s Property Tax Cap Commission.

DeSanctis holds a master’s degree in public policy and a bachelor’s degree in education. He is married to Deneen, a Fairfield based speech-language pathologist, and they are the proud parents of three young children.
