About Richard

I am Richard Lacourciere, a Democrat running for

City Council at-large in New Britain.

A working class resident raised in New Britain,

I am a paraeducator in our public school system, and a union steward of AFT Local 2407.

I've also been an organizer for activist groups, grassroots political campaigns, and other unions.

I am running to create a fairer and more transparent government that works for all of us.

For too long, City Hall has been rife with nepotism and corruption. Millions of dollars go to cosmetic projects and military police equipment, while our schools lose funding and our youth are criminalized.

I’m going to change the way our city approaches issues, and fight for crime prevention and youth healing instead of the cruel and backwards system currently in place.

While our mayor holds press conferences telling you she wants more children in cages, I’ve been in the classroom helping New Britain's children learn and grow.

So I know — with proper resources and help from the city — what a better future for our schools and our town could look like.

Together, I know that we can have more resources for those in need, and reduce the tax burden on working families — but only if we stand up and fight for that chance.
