CHESHIRE, CT – Elizabeth Esty and her staff kicked open the doors at their campaign headquarters in Cheshire for an open house Saturday afternoon. More than 100 supporters and guests turned out for the event, which was a billed as a kick-off for the Esty campaign’s grassroots field operation. Supporters signed up to phone bank, canvass, make signs, and film video testimonials for Esty in her campaign for the 5th District. After being introduced by her campaign treasurer, Patti Flynn-Harris, Esty thanked the attendees and asked for their help to fix Washington.

“We’re here today because we all know that we can’t wait for Washington to fix itself,” Esty said. “We need to take it upon ourselves to bring common sense and accountability to Washington now. And we know that this election is our chance to make it happen. The campaign that works for this election, will win this election. It’s not the decision of insiders in Hartford. And it’s not the decision of lobbyists in Washington. We’re going to outwork our opponents, and we’re going to earn the support of voters all across the district.”

The event continues a highly successful April for Esty’s campaign. Earlier in the month, Esty announced her best fundraising quarter to date—having brought in more than $360,000 in the first quarter of 2012, and more than $1.1 million in total. Esty begins the second quarter of the year with more than $800,000 cash on hand.
