State Rep. Clark Chapin, R-67, and Cecilia Buck-Taylor will hold open houses at Republican headquarters in New Milford Oct. 10 and Oct. 27.

Rep. Chapin is a candidate for the 30th Senatorial seat and Ms. Buck-Taylor is a candidate for the 67th state General Assembly seat.

The open houses will run Oct. 10 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and Oct. 27 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at Republican headquarters on the corner of Bridge and South Main streets.

Rep. Chapin said political campaigns are often limited to slogans and campaign rhetoric and he thought an opportunity to discuss issues in detail would give voters the chance to make a more thoughtful decision in the voting booth.

Ms. Buck-Taylor, who is vice chairwoman of the Town Council, is running for her first statewide office.

She said she welcomes the opportunity to let voters know her ideas and her plans for turning the state around if she is elected.

She also said these meetings will be another opportunity for her to listen to the concerns of the residents of New Milford so she can bring those concerns to Hartford.

Refreshments will be provided.
