West Hartford RTC Chairman Issues "Alberto Cortes" Pumpkin Challenge! - October 2, 2021

As Chairman of the West Hartford Republican Town Committee, I must say that my family and I love getting our pumplins from The United Methodist Church on the corner of New Britain Avenue and Bershire Road in West Hartford.  The proceeds from the pumpkin purchases goes to help the church fund various charities.

We're so proud of our Republican Town Council candidate, Alberto Cortes, for running the pumpkin sales project for the church this year.

We challenge the town to come fill an even bigger wheelbarrow of pumpkins for their own home than we did.  We're calling it, "The Alberto Cortes Challenge!"


Great Event for the West Hartford RTC and Republican Municipal Candidates at the Park Road Parade - October 2, 2021


What a great day at The Park Road Parade!  We had a ton of traffic at our booth where we provided over 3 cases of cold bottled water, 3 Dunkin' Donuts "Boxes of Joe" coffee, and over 5 dozen donuts from Dunkin' Donuts to parade watchers.  In addition, we gave out over 50 red, West Hartford Republican Town Committee balloons to kids and you could see them lined all along the parade route!

We also had parade patrons sign up to receive our newsletter and the candidates handed out their palm cards and donor cards.  Not to mention, they had great conversations with West Hartford voters.  Great job to our Town Council candidates, Mary Fay, Mark Zydanowicz, and Alberto Cortes as well as our Board of Educations candidate, Dr. Gayle Harris!

An Army of Volunteers Assist Candidate Mary Fay to Canvass the Webster Hill Middle School District - September 25, 2021


Members of the West Hartford Republican Town Committee (RTC) worked together with Mary Fay going door-to-door in the Webster Hill School neighborhood, dropping off palm cards and taking requests from neighbors to place advertising lawn signs in their yards.  There were many great conversations and the team was energized with such a great reception from the neighborhood!


Candidates and Volunteers Work Together to Canvass Sedgwick Middle School District - September 18, 2021


An army of RTC member volunteers banded together on Saturday to canvass the Segdwick Middle School area, knocking on doors, speaking with voters and providing "palm cards" with information about our municipal candidates and where they stand on important issues facing West Hartford residents.  Canvassing will continue every Saturday until Election Day.

 See the collage below of a few of our RTC members who helped volunteer to canvass neighborhoods



We've just added a "Photos" section at the bottom of our website.  Check it out!  On September 12, 2021 some of our candidates attended the St. Timothy's/St. Thomas the Apostle Church annual "Parish Picnic."  There were over 300 attendees at the event and our candidates had the opportunity to meet and greet with many of them.  We've included a photo collage of the event so, take a look!


Welcome to the West Hartford Republican Candidates

2021 Municipal Election Website

This is the official website for the 2021 Municipal Campaign for the West Hartford Republican Candidates running for West Hartford Town Council and the West Hartford Board of Education.

On this site, you can find out more information about the candidates, donate to the campaign, volunteer for the campaign and learn more about what our candidates stand for and their overall platform strategy for West Hartford.

Only Vote Row B

Please remember - ONLY VOTE ROW B - for your Republican Candidates on Election Day, Tuesday, November 2, 2021.  THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.  In West Hartford, you can vote for up to 6 candidates for Town Council but if you want our Republican candidates to win seats on the Town Council, it is important you only vote for our three  candidates, which will be on Row B - Mary Fay, Mark Zydanowicz and Alberto Cortes.  Using your other three votes on non-Republican candidates could prevent our Republican candidates from winning a seat on the Town Council.
