Primary Set in Fairfield State House Race

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Voters will now pick the Democratic nominee for one of Fairfield’s three state House of Representatives seats. Kevin Coyner filed for a primary earlier this week for the party’s nomination, challenging party-endorsed candidate Sue Brand in the 132nd District.

Brand, a member of Fairfield’s Board of Education, won the Democratic Town Committee’s nomination at the district convention May 23. She edged out Coyner, a firefighter who works in Greenwich, by one vote. The two will now face off in a primary Aug. 14.

“Since there was only a one vote margin in the nomination, I felt it was important to take the decision to the voters in Fairfield in the August Democratic primary election,” Coyner said in a statement.

The 132nd District covers most of Fairfield’s coastline and southern neighborhoods. It is currently represented by Republican Brenda Kupchick . The district’s Republicans voted unanimously for Kupchick to be the party’s nominee in her bid for a second term.
