Hartford, CT — Today, Connecticut Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo released the following statement regarding the reelection campaign of Attorney General George Jepsen.
“I would like to congratulate Attorney General Jepsen on filing his paperwork to run for reelection in 2014. During his tenure, Attorney General Jepsen has been a tremendous advocate for the people of Connecticut and has been especially dogged in fighting for the rights of consumers. This was front-and-center in his work on the National Mortgage Settlement which provided much-needed relief to homeowners in a challenging economy. Just this past January, he took action against electric suppliers for misleading and false marketing on behalf of electricity consumers.
“During his first term, the office of the Attorney General has helped return more than a billion dollars to the the state of Connecticut and state taxpayers.”
