Earlier this month, health care patient experience firm Press Ganey announced the addition of Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy to its Board of Directors, noting, “...Kennedy brings a unique perspective to Press Ganey's Board as both a long-time advocate for affordable health care in the U.S. and for the civil rights of persons with disabilities. “

Now, the Branford resident is making news with his statement, released yesterday, regarding State Sen. Ed Meyer’s (D) decision not to run for re-election after this term. Meyer's 12th District Seat represents Branford, Guilford, North Branford,Madison,Durham and Killingworth.

The following statement was released by Ted Kenendy Jr. on March 24, 2014:

 “I want to thank and congratulate Senator Ed Meyer for his outstanding service to Connecticut’s State Senate District and for the exceptional work that he has done for the entire State of Connecticut.  Through dedication, keen intellect and personal commitment to constituent services, Ed has given us a stronger state, especially in the areas of public safety, economic development and environmental protection.

I have been encouraged by many friends and civic leaders to consider running for the 12th Senate District seat.  I intend to seriously evaluate this opportunity for public service, and to discuss it with my family, close friends and leaders throughout the district.  I will make a final decision within the next two weeks.”
