This morning Matt Lesser announced that he is exploring a run for Secretary of the State.

Lesser moved to our city to attend Wesleyan. He has been representing the City's 100th district in Hartford since 2008. A previous representative of this district, Susan Bysiewicz, served as Secretary of the State until 2011.

Lesser has a progressive record as a legislator. He has been a national leader in writing legislation to regulate the financial industry with respect to student loans and teacher retirement funds.

He has also been a strong advocate for the environment, and was named the 2015 Legislative Champion by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters.
