Newly-elected Republican state Sen. Art Linares will address the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland this weekend.
“The depth and diversity of the conservative movement’s bench provides hope for America’s future as we face new challenges, and is reflected at CPAC this year especially,” Al Cardenas, chairman of The American Conservative Union, said on the CPAC website. “As some of the youngest leaders in their states, these conservatives are committed to the timeless principles and future of our nation.”
Linares, the grandson of Cuban exiles, is currently serving his first term in the state Senate. He represents the towns of Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland and Westbrook.
