UConn Law to Host Final Attorney General Debate
October 19, 2018
Hartford, CT

UConn School of Law will host the final debate among candidates for state attorney general on Oct. 30, 2018. The event will begin at 7 p.m. in the Reading Room in William F. Starr Hall.

Susan Hatfield, William Tong and Peter Goselin ‘95 will each give opening and closing statements, and will be questioned by a panel. WFSB anchor Eric Parker ‘10 will serve as moderator.

The event is open to the public but seating is limited and registration is required by 6 p.m. on the date of the debate. Only those showing proof of registration will be admitted. Backpacks, umbrellas, large purses and beverages will not be permitted in the hall and may not be stored in the building.

Hatfield, the Republican nominee, is an assistant state’s attorney. Tong, the Democratic nominee, is a state representative and House chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Goselin, the Green Party candidate, is a labor and employment lawyer. Connecticut’s current attorney general, George Jepsen, opted not to run for reelection.

A reception with the candidates will follow the debate, which will take place exactly one week before the election on Nov. 6, 2018. In addition to voting for a state attorney general, voters will choose the governor, state representatives and senators, U.S. congressional representatives and one U.S. senator.

The law school is hosting the debate with the generous financial support of The Flynn-Martin Fund for Excellence at The UConn Foundation.
