To the Editor:
Connecticut experienced the two largest state tax increases in history in the last few years. The rainy day fund was practically drained to close the past year’s deficit. As claimed by Democratic legislators, “The budget is balanced” but it is unclear if this is true. There is another major financial storm on the horizon for 2017.
I don’t want a person representing me in Hartford who is a rubber stamp for the Malloy Administration. A person who doesn’t care about the funding of Essex’s schools. A person who doesn’t care about the well-being of the people he represents. I want someone who opposes tax increases, someone who will work to stop careless government spending, someone who will promote economic growth, someone who will look after the well-being of the residents of Chester, Deep River, Essex and Haddam. I want someone who will help make Connecticut “Better Than Ever.”
It is time for a change in Hartford this November. It is time to elect a representative for the 36th district who the hard-working taxpayers of Connecticut deserve! We need a fresh face, integrity, and real common-sense solutions to the state’s problems. Bob Siegrist is the person we need in Hartford to represent the 36th State House District. Bob will be the voice of change we need.
I will be voting for Bob on November 8th. I ask the residents of the 36th district to join me in voting for Bob Siegrest for State Representative.
