Candidate Art Linares Endorsed by Connecticut Business and Industry Association

The Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) recently endorsed Art Linares for election to the state Senate in Connecticut’s 33rd District.

In endorsing Linares, CBIA president and CEO John R. Rathgeber said, “Connecticut clearly needs lawmakers who can restore business confidence in our state so that employers invest, grow and create jobs here. We believe Art Linares is committed to making Connecticut a better state in which to do business, which means more and better jobs for our residents.”

Rathgeber continued, “We need legislators in Hartford who will make the tough decisions necessary to help our economic recovery and create more job opportunities for the state’s citizens. We believe Art has the qualities to make an outstanding legislator and we urge the voters in the 33rd District to support his candidacy.”

Linares welcomed the overwhelming support of Connecticut’s largest business organization, “I thank CBIA for their endorsement of my campaign and I am proud to have the support of such an important business group who understands we must elect leaders who will promote policies that will enable our economy to grow and lead to sustainable job growth. For too long companies in Connecticut have struggled with the high cost of business, it is time we reverse the trend of higher taxes, higher energy costs and expanding regulations. As a small business owner I will do my part in the state Senate to reduce government spending, lower taxes and promote pro-job growth legislation to improve our economy.”

Art Linares, who lives in Westbrook, is seeking election to the 33rd District, which includes the towns of Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Haddam, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland, and Westbrook.
CBIA is Connecticut’s largest business organization with 10,000 member companies who is the leading voice in Connecticut that promote economic growth, a fiscally responsible state government, and a dynamic business climate. For more information, please visit www.cbia.com/newsroom.
