Emanuela Palmares Announces Campaign for State Representative 110th District Seat

Danbury, CT- Emanuela Palmares announced she is seeking the Republican nomination for State Representative of Danbury’s 110th District. The election will be in November. Palmares, a long time Danbury resident and proud mother, is the editor of the Tribuna Newspaper. She is a Commissioner on the Latino and Puerto Rican Affairs Commission which advises the Governor and the State Legislature, a council member on Danbury’s Aging in Place Council, and serves as a member of the Danbury Hospital Board of Directors.

“It is time for the residents of the 110th District to be well represented in Hartford by an independent voice who reflects the diversity and everyday struggles of its people,” said Palmares. “Danbury is where I grew up, went to school, and saw my parents work three jobs and eventually start their own business. It’s where I choose to live and raise my beautiful son.”

Palmares was honored in 2015 by Latinos United for Professional Advancement (LUPA) as one of the organization's 50 Most Influential Latinos in Connecticut. In 2010, she was honored by the Fairfield County Business Journal and named on their 40 Under 40 list.

“Danbury has been failed by the Democrat-controlled legislature for almost three decades.  Danbury Public Schools have been underfunded by 30 million dollars by the state. With a Democrat Governor and a Democrat majority in the state legislature, Danbury has not received its fair share,” stated Palmares.

“I am looking forward to an engaging and interactive campaign. I will be knocking on every door in the district and listening to the concerns of all residents,” said Palmares. “We will be kicking off my campaign on February 5th, 5:30pm, at Two Steps Downtown Grille, 5 Ives St, right in the heart of Downtown Danbury. I hope to see you all there.”
