The Westfield News: Huntington resident to run for Rep. Kulik’s seat; Kickoff in Chester announced

HUNTINGTON – Kate Albright-Hanna has announced her candidacy for state representative, 1st Franklin District, the seat held by Rep. Stephen Kulik since 1993. Kulik announced in February that he would not run for a fourteenth term.

Albright-Hanna was the first to file papers for the seat. On Tuesday, she will officially kick off her campaign at The Common Table, 30 Main Street in Chester at 6:30 p.m. The Kate 4 Rep Campaign Kickoff Party will feature an open bar and live music by the Franklin County Sweethearts. No donation is required, and children are welcome.

“I am thrilled to officially launch my campaign for state representative of the 1st Franklin District in the hilltowns — a place that prides itself on being independent and self-reliant, but also opens its arms to newcomers and watches out for its neighbors. It’s a place where every voice counts — and where you don’t have to be part of a big political machine to make a difference,” said Albright-Hanna.
