WESTON, Conn. -- The Weston Republican Town Committee (RTC) on April 12 endorsed a slate of candidates for office.

The endorsements included:

  • John Shaban, for 4th Congressional District;
  • Toni Boucher, for 26th State Senate District;
  • Tony Hwang, 28th State Senate District; and
  • Adam Dunsby for 135th House District.

“We are excited to have so many candidates running for office that have faithfully served Weston and the State of Connecticut for years." said Weston RTC Chair Bob Ferguson. "Considering the state’s current fiscal woes, we need representatives with proven track records that have consistently fought for fiscal responsibility and against the administration’s runaway spending policies.”

Shaban, who has held the 135th District State House of Representatives seat since 2010, is challenging Democratic Rep. Jim Himes for the 4th Congressional District seat. Shaban is a commercial litigator and partner in the law firm of Whitman Breed Abbott & Morgan in Greenwich.

Boucher has represented the 26th State Senate District since 2008. She is a ranking member on the Education and Transportation committees. And she is a member of the Finance Revenue & Bonding committee as well as the Judiciary committee.

Hwang was elected to represent the 28th State Senate District in 2014. He is the ranking member on the Housing and Labor and Public Employees committees. In addition, he is a member of the Commerce and Veterans’ Affairs committees.

Dunsby, first selectman of Easton, seeks to replace John Shaban for the 135th District State House of Representatives. Dunsby was elected first selectman in 2013. Before that, he served as chair of Easton’s Board of Education as well as chair of the town’s Conservation Commission.

All four candidates face no Republican opposition. However, they must be endorsed at their respective May party conventions.

The General Election will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

The Weston Republican Town Committee meets on the second Tuesday of every month. The public is welcome to attend. For more information, click here.
