The following Letter to the Editor was submitted from Greenwich First Selectman, Peter Tesei:
The Town of Greenwich is blessed to have Livvy Floren serving as State Representative from the 149th District of Greenwich and Stamford. Livvy exemplifies honesty, integrity and civility. These are qualities we value and should honor in our political process.
As our Town’s State Representative and Dean of the Greenwich and Stamford legislative delegations, Livvy is adept at obtaining State resources for services most vital for any community. Life safety, public health, emergency preparedness and support for our aging population are all services supported by Representative Floren’s effective representation.
Livvy obtained (STEAP) Small Town Economic Assistance Program Funding for installation of dry hydrants and cisterns for areas of back-country Greenwich that lack an adequate water supply for fire suppression. She obtained the same program funding to update Greenwich’s health laboratory that residents depend on for water testing and tick and mosquito testing to aid in combating Lyme disease and West Nile virus. Livvy supported our Town’s application for an emergency generator for the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center in Glenville, so it can be fully utilized as an emergency storm shelter. Livvy also obtained another STEAP grant for the Nathaniel Witherell Skilled Nursing Facility to support the renovation of its rehabilitation facility.
In addition to identifying and obtaining state resources to address critical needs for our community, Livvy is always present before community organizations to listen to concerns, obtain knowledge on emerging issues and provide valuable information to our residents.
Commitment, responsiveness and a genuine heart for Greenwich make Livvy Floren the only choice in the 149th District this November. Greenwich and Stamford are fortunate to be represented by Livvy Floren and we should all be thankful she desires to continue to serve us. Join me in supporting her on November 4th.
