As a lifelong resident of Greenwich, I have always been impressed by how strong our community is and how it has set itself apart from the rest of the state. Never has this resilience been tested more amply than right now.
We have an opportunity to elect a candidate that will bring a renewed sense of optimism to the state capitol and who will go to bat for us, protecting the hard-earned resources we invest in this community, and our independence and self-reliance in tackling unique obstacles.
Ryan Fazio, our candidate for the State Senate, was raised here in town and has rooted his success in the opportunities Greenwich afforded him. While a lot of young people have faced a need to move out of state in order to stretch their incomes and pursue broader career opportunities, Ryan has chosen to stay in Connecticut to help rebuild our economy and re-establish the type of economic environment that young people can feel invested in.
As a father and grandfather it’s important to me that the future for CT is bright and strong for the next generation. Ryan will be a strong leader to assure this goal is attained.
Ryan’s keen interest in and understanding of economic and fiscal issues, his personal understanding of what makes a community like Greenwich strong, and his message of hope are the reasons I will support him this November.
I ask others to join me in supporting Ryan Fazio for State Senate on Nov. 3rd.
