WESTPORT, Conn. – Brandi Briggs, a member of Westport’s Representative Town Meeting, received the unanimous endorsement of the GOP last week to run for state representative for the 136th District in Westport.
Briggs represents District 6 in the RTM and was nominated by Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe and Westport Board of Education member Jeannie Smith.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Westport Republicans to be a candidate for the Connecticut State Legislature for the 136th District representing Westport,” said Briggs. “As a mom of three children, I am determined to make sure Westport’s future is bright. That means preserving our great schools, creating more good-paying jobs, protecting our environment, lowering our tax burden, and improving transportation and traffic in our area.
"To achieve this, we need positive, forward-thinking leadership representing us in Hartford. That is why I am running to be Westport’s next state representative.”
Briggs is a married mother of three children and an attorney. She graduated from Boston College and the University of Colorado School of Law. She serves on the executive board of the Westport Young Woman’s League and the Westport League of Women Voters.
The seat in the 136th District is currently held by state Rep. Jonathan Steinberg (D-Westport).
