On Thursday, August 21, Paul Formica, the Republican candidate for the 20th State Senate district, earned the nomination of the State Independent Party.
“I am very grateful to the Independent Party for its support and endorsement. Thank you for affirming that a leader who puts ideas into action is the best option for our district and the State," said Formica.
"I will continue to share a vision and economic plan that increases opportunities for our residents, businesses, cities and towns."
Formica, father of four, is serving his fourth term as First Selectman for the town East Lyme, and is the owner of Flanders Fish Market, a family restaurant celebrating more than three decades of operation. Formica also serves on many regional boards, working with other municipal leaders to resolve issues of transportation, water and commerce.
The 20th District includes the towns of Old Lyme, East Lyme, Salem, Bozrah, New London and Waterford as well as portions of Montville and Old Saybrook.
