Building a Movement
Justin Farmer is a 26-year-old activist elected official. He is currently serving his second term as a Legislative Councilman representing Hamden’s 5th District. Justin’s experience as a seasoned community organizer has enabled him to build some of the strongest grassroots campaigns in state history.
For Justin, the issues he champions are personal. Justin was diagnosed with Tourette’s at age 17, after years of fighting and advocating for himself in a system that can often leave our students most in need without critical help or resources. Justin quickly realized that it wasn’t enough to advocate only for himself. The issues he faced are systemic and until these systems are changed, our students and communities will continue to suffer the generational consequences. Through the years, Justin found that these issues did not stop with our system of education, but rather extended to public transportation, healthcare, the job market, and more. Justin is not just a champion on these issues - He is engaged in the solutions on a personal level.
That’s why our campaign is focused on communities and the issues we face collectively. This isn’t about electing one candidate - it’s about building a movement that puts Hamden and all of Connecticut’s working class first. We know that the people closest to the problem are closest to the solution and we look forward to working with you to build a better Hamden, a better Connecticut.
