Somers, 48, is a former five-term member of the Town Council of Groton, where she also served as mayor. She survived a three-way August primary by fewer than 1,000 votes to become Republican Tom Foley's lieutenant governor running mate.
...
Somers, a Groton native and University of Connecticut graduate in economics, founded Hydrofera LLC., a Willimantic bio-tech company. On Sept. 24, five weeks after the GOP primary created their political team, Foley introduced her at a New Britain event unveiling his urban agenda as "Heather Somers Bond."
Malloy credits Wyman with leading the state's successful early adoption of the federal Affordable Care Act, as she employed the same skills she used to help create the HUSKY health insurance program for low-income children nearly 20 years ago. Wyman, if she is at an event with Malloy, will nearly always introduce him, with gusto. Her trademark high heels, worn even during multi-mile inaugural parades, are legendary.
Somers is a conservative, pro-gun candidate with a permit to carry a weapon. She successfully sold the medical-device company in Willimantic, but had to return much of the $1 million start-up loan that Connecticut Innovations -- a quasi-public state agency Foley has criticized during the election campaign -- awarded with employment-goal stipulations. The company ended up returning nearly half a million dollars and paid an $80,000 fine for failing to meet those job-creation targets.
Somers rarely speaks during joint appearances with Foley.
...
Somers was initially the running mate for Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton during his bid to win the gubernatorial primary.
...
But shortly after the Republican convention in May, Somers dropped Boughton, who felt betrayed and, after a brief alignment with Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti, terminated his campaign.
...
While her role has been generally limited in Foley's second run against Malloy, Somers has recently been on the attack.
...
"I have been saying from the beginning of the race that we should get our money's worth," said Somers, adding that she brings a variety of experience.
...
In some ways, Burns said, Wyman and Somers are taking the role of the spouses of Malloy and Foley.
