38th District candidates to debate Wednesday
Waterford — Candidates for the 38th District seat in the state House of Representatives will face off in a debate at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Waterford Public Library. It is the final debate in a series sponsored by The Day and the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut, with assistance from the League of Women Voters of Southeastern Connecticut.
Participating in Wednesday’s debate will be Green Party candidate Bill Collins, Democrat Mike Balestracci and Republican Kathleen McCarty. The 38th District includes Waterford and a portion of Montville. Rep. Betsy Ritter, a Democrat, held the seat for five terms before opting this year to run for the 20th District Senate seat, which became open when Sen. Andrea Stillman, a Democrat, did not seek re-election. Ritter faces Republican candidate Paul Formica.
