A city politician is looking to become a member of Congress.
New Britain Alderman Emmanuel Sanchez announced he is running in the fifth congressional district to try to replace now Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty.
The 29-year-old Democrat has served the town for more than eight years.
"We need elected officials who are able to bring people together to create unity. I believe I can do that. I plan to work every single day to ensure to connect with the voters of this district and their concerns and ensure I know what matters most to them,” Sanchez said.
Esty announced she is not seeking re-election after her aide was accused of sexually abusing women in her Washington D.C. office.?
