First Selectman Tesei: Bocchino will be a voice for common sense fiscal solutions.

letter to the editorTo the Editor,

On November 4th voters in the 150th Assembly District have a clear choice as to who will represent them in Hartford for the next two years.

The choice between the two candidates running is clear. Michael Bocchino is the one candidate who has shown a consistent and abiding interest in issues that matter to the community.

As Chairman of the Byram Neighborhood Association, Mike has worked closely with State and Municipal officials to address quality of life issues facing the Byram community. Through his efforts, public improvements to the Byram District have taken place, traffic signalization and signage added and improved pedestrian access completed. Mike has shown he is a doer and this is precisely the type of experience that will benefit the residents of the 150th District in Hartford.

Mike is the only candidate running who has shown an active interest in public education not only through his words but by his actions. As President of the New Lebanon PTA he has been a leader focused on bringing solutions to the challenges of racial balance, achievement and enrollment and space issues. Mike Bocchino worked closely with the Board of Education toward finding an acceptable resolution for the State driven racial balancing issue. The State Board of Education has adopted Greenwich’s plan for addressing the matter.

As a Republican, Mike Bocchino will be a voice for common sense fiscal solutions and balance the Democratic legislative majority that has failed to address Connecticut’s financial crisis. Mike Bocchino will work in tandem with State Senator Scott Frantz and Governor Tom Foley to restore financial stability, create new jobs and bring pride back to Connecticut. Please join me in voting for Mike Bocchino, Scott Frantz and Tom Foley on November 4th. We have waited too long for a Connecticut comeback so let’s start it now.


Peter J. Tesei
