LETTER: Fiorello understands the strength of our communities is in our towns, not Hartford.

Submitted Stephen Schmalhofer Greenwich

While our district has welcomed several recent newcomers from New York City, over the same time period we have seen other families and businesses leave Connecticut for more attractive places to live and work, including Florida, Texas, Colorado, Utah, Georgia, and Montana. 

Kimberly Fiorello is the only candidate running for state representative in District 149 who understands the most urgent challenge facing the state of Connecticut: How do we attract more young families and growing businesses to Connecticut? Kimberly Fiorello understands that the strength of our communities is in our towns, not Hartford.

She will go to Hartford to help preserve the freedoms that Greenwich, Stamford, and all Connecticut towns enjoy.

Kimberly Fiorello understands our urgent need to reduce the tax burden on families and businesses. She will fight to create more educational choices for parents through charter schools and an Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program for businesses.
