Larson Stresses Education to HPHS Students


On a recent visit to Hartford Public High School, Congressional candidate John B. Larson addressed Robert Abate's honors U.S. history junior class.

Larson started off by saying he was brought up in Mayberry Village, a public housing complex in East Hartford. "I was one of eight children. Neither of my parents went to college but all their children did," said Larson.

A former high school teacher, he said that public education was a top priority in his campaign. "If I am elected on November third, I will fight for public education for Hartford and Connecticut, because I am a product of it myself," said Larson.

The honors history class at Hartford Public is no stranger to politics. According to Abate, his class registered the highest amount of new voters for the past three years. "My students registered 132 new voters. This total was higher than the other two high public schools in the city of Hartford. I am so proud of the enthusiasm of these kids," said Abate.
