Walko: Floren is a Good Listener Who Builds Consensus

Letter to the editor submitted by Stephen Walko

On November 6, you will have the opportunity to re-elect an individual for the 149th State General Assembly District who personifies thoughtfulness and who has a proven track record of results.  Livvy Floren is among the most uniquely qualified people to serve us in Hartford.  She possesses the qualities of a good leader, a good listener and good legislator.

As the Ranking Member of the State’s Sub-Committee on Bonding, Livvy knows what projects need to be funded like New Lebanon School and what projects should not be supported by our precious and hard-earned tax dollars.

A champion of public education, Livvy has focused her energies on ensuring all students are provided a chance to succeed.  She has led the way to create a framework for high schools and vocational colleges to align in the creation of job opportunities within the State.

The citizens of Greenwich have been well served by Livvy’s intellect and ability to build consensus during a time when it appears that consensus and problem solving are lacking.

It is not a surprise that Livvy will be seeking her 10th term this November.  I know that she will continue her tireless efforts to reduce the burden of state imposed taxes.  With her caring, result-driven work ethic, I know Livvy will continue to fight for us and a better Connecticut.

I am excited and grateful that Livvy continues to seek to be our Representative in the 149th District.  Please join me in voting for Livvy Floren for the 149th General Assembly District.

Note: The deadline for letters in support of candidates in the November 6, 2018 election is Monday, October 29, 2018.

Not all letters will be published. Instead we will select a sampling of letters.
