To the Editor:
Please allow me this opportunity to express my strong support for the re-election of Livvy Floren to the Connecticut State House of Representatives for the 149th district. In the Connecticut Assembly Livvy’s dedication and hard work for the people of Connecticut have earned her the respect of our State’s residents, her fellow legislators on both sides of the aisle, and all who have dealt with her on the many issues she effectively champions.
Livvy has developed a strong record of achievement for our State and has been an important voice for Connecticut’s priorities. Livvy has been particularly effective in her advocacy for conservation activities in Connecticut and her stewardship of our State’s precious natural resources. In addition, Livvy has been a strong advocate for fiscal responsibility in Connecticut, which is now needed in our State more than ever.
I have had the privilege of working closely with Livvy for almost 15 years in my role as President of the Greenwich Point Conservancy, where Livvy has been an active, dedicated and committed board member since the group was founded in 2003. Livvy was instrumental in the creation of Greenwich’s state-of-the-art environmental education center at the award-winning Innis Arden Cottage, and has been a key supporter of the Conservancy’s mission of preserving and restoring the historic buildings at Greenwich Point.
I am a proud supporter of Livvy Floren, and encourage my fellow residents to send Livvy to Hartford for another term.
