Nearly 15 days after the Senator Art Linares’ campaign for re-election announced it had reached its campaign funding goal, the state has certified State Senator Art Linares, R-33rd, for public financing.

Campaign Manager Ryan Linares told a group of volunteers at a July 31st orientation meeting, “We surpassed the required number of in-district donors by a huge margin in comparison to two years ago.” he said. He added that Senator Linares has been getting an enthusiastic reception everywhere he goes within the district.

Senator Linares has personally knocked on 2,000 doors in the district so far, about 300 more than his marker at the same time two years ago, Ryan Linares shared with the group of 13 volunteers.

“What we have learned is that the people of this district are well in-tune with what is happening in Hartford.  When the Senator meets constituents at the doors they have concerns and the Senator has answers” he said.

“Senator Linares is working hard seven days a week on this campaign, attending events throughout the district, knocking on doors and listening to the people about issues that are important to them,” he concluded. “We have one of the hardest working senators in the state and one of the hardest working candidate, and that should be motivation for all of us.”

The volunteers attending the orientation represented all 12 towns within the 33rd Senatorial District. Anyone else interested in volunteering can send an e-mail to senatorlinaresmanager@ gmail.com.
