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.”

Aundre proudly served as his state representative with his main focuses being lowering taxes and improving Connecticut’s education system. He unfortunately lost his 2016 re-election bid, but we are sure he will move on to do great things. Be sure to keep an eye out for him.
