At 20-years-old, Aundre knocked on over 5,000 doors to earn a spot on the ballot in his largely Democratic district two years ago. “I don’t meet the litmus test for your conventional Republican, whether by my race or my age,” Bugardner said in a Huffington Post article in 2015. “But since my district is historically blue, I can’t be a partisan zealot or create more problems in the statehouse than I solve. Because of that, Democrats so far have welcomed me with open arms.” Fast forward to today, he proudly serves as his state representative with his main focuses being lowering taxes and improving Connecticut’s education system.
He’s overcome some pretty incredible challenges in his life and it’s likely that he’ll have a tough race against the sitting Mayor, Bill de Blasio, a darling Progressive Left. We at MPM certainly admire Josh’s ambition and wish him the best of luck.
