Litchfield legislators Craig Miner and David T. Wilson will seek re-election in November after earning nominations at their respective Republican conventions this week.
Miner will seek a third term as a state senator representing the 30th District, while Wilson will run for a third term as a state representative representing the 66th District towns of Litchfield, Warren, Morris, Bethlehem and Woodbury. The 30th District is the largest senatorial district in the state with 15 municipalities stretching from Canaan to Brookfield.
Both Miner and Wilson were unopposed in their nominating conventions. They have track records as fiscal conservatives at a time when the state is facing a severe fiscal crisis in the form of a looming $3 million budget deficit.
Wilson’s opponent will be Matthew Dyer of Litchfield, who works as an attorney in Bristol. Dyer won the Democratic nomination on Monday. He too was unopposed. Dyer has lived in Litchfield for two years and will be making his first bid for state office.
