Raghib Allie-Brennan
Candidate for State Representative in the 2nd District.


Raghib Allie-Brennan is passionate about the opportunity to
serve our community as State Representative for Connecticut’s
2nd Assembly District. His broad range of experience at the
local, state, and federal level has positioned him to better serve
the people of the 2nd District.
Raghib grew up in Bethel and graduated from Bethel High
School, learning early in life the importance of service to his
community. As a member of St. Mary’s Parish and a leader in
the church’s youth group, he served some of the poorest people
in our nation on several mission trips across America. This
exposure to the extraordinary, difficult circumstances so many
face inspired him to dedicate his life to public service.



Raghib has been involved in local politics and community activism for years. After graduating from
Marymount Manhattan College with a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations, he became a
member of the Bethel Democratic Town Committee. On November 5, 2013, Raghib overwhelmingly
won the election to serve the Town of Bethel as a member of the Inland Wetlands Commission where
he worked to strike an important balance between industry and appropriate protections for the
environment and homeowners. This experience fed Raghib’s passion for public service. In 2014, he
served in the New Britain office of Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty, where he worked closely with the
Constituents Services Director to ensure that the needs of thousands of seniors, veterans, women and
children in Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District didn’t fall through the cracks of government
To better understand policy, Raghib became a congressional staffer in the office of Congresswoman
Alma S. Adams, a member of the Education and the Workforce Committee, Small Business
Committee, Joint Economic Committee, as well as the Agriculture Committee. As part of the
Congresswoman’s legislative team, Raghib managed a robust portfolio of issues such as environmental
and health care policy and advised the Congresswoman on controversial issues ranging from the Syrian
refugee crisis to our nation’s growing opioid epidemic. In a short period of time he has been able to
bring a myriad of ideas to fruition. Raghib also testified on behalf of Congresswoman Adams at a
U.S. Commission on Civil Rights briefing on environmental justice issues and protecting our nation’s
most vulnerable communities.
Connecticut is faced with serious problems, and also with extraordinary opportunities. However, it
will take effective leadership in the 2nd District to solve problems and improve the state. That is why
Raghib’s top priorities that he will work to advance include encouraging long-term economic growth,
investing in early childhood education, and tackling Connecticut’s opioid epidemic.
Having worked in policy on both the national and local level, Raghib understands how to work across
the aisle to get things done. With education, jobs, and economic development as major priorities for
Raghib, it’s time to bring his experience to the 2nd District. Raghib will help keep Connecticut’s
economy moving in the right direction and ensure our communities have the resources they need to
