Danbury community activist seeks run for 24th state Senate district

Community activist Ken Gucker is seeking the Democratic Town Committee's nomination to run for the 24th state Senate District. 

 

The seat is currently held by Republican Michael McLachlan.  The area includes Danbury, Sherman, New Fairfield and the Stony Hill section of Bethel. 

 

Gucker is Vice Chairman of the Danbury Democratic Town Committee.  He has lived in Danbury for 28 years, having moved to the City from New Fairfield.  He is a small business owner who has been active in land use and environmental issues in Danbury. 

 

Among the issues he cited are the effort to preserve the McLean House on Main Street and to thwart an effort to allow variances for a new business use in a two-acre residential zone in the scenic Long Ridge neighborhood.  He also fought against the Cotswold development off Clapboard Ridge Road to try to limit density and protect the environment and adjacent water sources.  The plan calls for 37 houses on steep wooded land.
