Rance Thompson

Office:Legislative Council - District 3


My name is Rance Thompson and I am running for Legislative Council, District 3.  I have lived in Newtown for the past 26 years.  My family and I love being members of this small knit community.  Both of my daughters attend Newtown schools and we could not be more appreciative of the stellar education they receive.  If elected, I will work hard to ensure that the future students of Newtown schools continue to receive the very best in education with the latest, research-based instruction.  Being a local small business owner for the past 26 years, I can share my knowledge to help make the best use of our local resources, which in turn yields the highest benefit to our town.  I can also lend my perspective on helping to keep local businesses prosperous in our community.  I ask for your trust and for your vote.   Please contact me by email: rance.thompson@gmail.com  or visit my Facebook page: facebook.com/RanceForNewtown.
