The Laurel is not in the business of endorsing political candidates but we do like pointing out when former media types enter the political fray.
Christine Palm is running for state representative from the 36th district (Chester, Deep River, Essex, Haddam). Chris reported for the Hartford Times during its final 2 years of existence (1974-1976), as well as the Hartford Advocate, and wrote a column for the Hartford Courant which highlighted buildings/spaces (she was nominated for a Pulitzer for an essay she had in the Courant).
Most recently she handled communications for the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women. She is a Democrat and taking on first-term GOP incumbent Robert Siegris.
