State Rep. Sam Belsito has certainly been making the rounds since being elected about a month ago. 

The 53rd District Republican has already conducted three meet-and-greet sessions. 

During his first town hall meeting in Tolland, he was joined by state Rep. Timothy Ackert, a Republican from the 8th District.

Meetings that took place in Ashford and Willington were co-hosted by state Sen. Tony Guglielmo, R-35. 

Residents in the audience were given informational handouts on the major legislation passed during the General Assembly’s 2013 Legislative Session. The pamphlets also included information and statistics on Connecticut’s economy and financial condition. 

The 53rd District includes Ashford, Tolland and Willington.

Belsito was elected to fill the vacancy in the 53rd District created when Bryan Hurlburt resigned to take a federal agriculture position.

Isn't refreshing that an elected representative actually wants to meet with and listen to what voters think?

It is different to see mainstream media running a puff piece on a Republican politician. Keeping it real though, isn't this really one meeting being held three times? Once in each town in the district. There is nothing newsworthy in this piece. Let's hear about the issues.

Well, LTR, you could also point out that Sam is talking about actions and events that happened before he was even tapped to run for the seat...
