Deep River Republican Town Committee Endorses Linares, Siegrist

The Deep River Republican Town Committee takes great pride in endorsing Art Linares for a second term as State Senator of the 33rd District and Bob Siegrist for his first term as State Representative of the 36th District, along with the other well qualified Republican candidates running this year.  Art and Bob representing us in Hartford will help attract more business, resulting in lower taxes.

Art Linares, seated State Senator for the 33rd Senate District, encompasses the towns of Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland, and Westbrook.  Senator Linares is a second generation American and resides in Westbrook.  Sen. Linares attended Westbrook public schools and graduated from the Sykes College of Business at the University of Tampa in Florida, where he majored in entrepreneurship, developing his own company as he earned a college degree. Senator Linares co-founded Greenskies, a successful, Middletown-based, commercial solar energy company.

Sen. Linares is Ranking Member of the Connecticut General Assembly’s Banks Committee and Ranking Member of the Select Committee on Children. Linares also serves on the Commerce and Education Committees. Senator Linares has a solid voting record – from protecting people’s rights as stated in the state constitution to understanding that jobs and business growth is the way to balance budgets, not tax increases. He has stood up for children and families, while also protecting the rights of seniors and the environment.    Senator Linares has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the Connecticut REALTORS, who fully evaluate candidates in determining who may best ensure there is a positive environment for living in or transferring property in Connecticut.  Real estate is essential to economic recovery and stability in the state and the nation and helps to build communities.

Bob Siegrist is the challenger for the 36th Representative District. His main focus as State Representative is all about the economy. A combination of lower taxes with more and better paying jobs is what Connecticut needs to improve our economy and with Bob as State Representative, he will vote against any budget that includes another tax hike for Connecticut’s residents.

Art Linares and Bob Siegrist will form a powerful team in Hartford to reverse ever-increasing State spending, hold the line on any new taxes, and encourage new business growth.   Be sure to vote on Tuesday November 4th and we encourage you to vote for Art, Bob and the Republican team.
