Woodbridge Selectman, Joe Dey, has officially endorsed Republican candidate, Dan DeBarba, for state representative in the 114th district. Dey praised DeBarba’s background in healthcare and business as a major reason for his endorsement.
“During such uncertain times, we need someone like Dan who has extensive experience in handling healthcare crises. As a business owner, Dan has firsthand experience with the struggles of owning a business in Connecticut and I am confident he will fight to make our state more business-friendly.” Dey continued, “We have been very fortunate to have Themis representing our town for the last two decades. I fully expect Dan will continue in this tradition, advocating for Woodbridge and all of the 114th district.”
DeBarba is a longtime Orange resident, and his three children are graduates of Amity High School. DeBarba has served as a healthcare administrator at several hospitals in Connecticut and is currently the chief financial officer of a healthcare system in New York. Additionally, he and his wife own a small business in the area.
