WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To the Editor: If you need any proof of the need to keep State Rep. Gail Lavielle in office, please consider the following two facts: For every tax dollar Wilton sends to Hartford, we get back two cents in services; and a 2014 Patch survey found that Wilton residents pay the highest taxes of any town in the state. Clearly, we are taxed enough. Yet the Democrat-led legislature in Hartford continues to call for higher and higher taxes to fund even more spending and to pay the bills for past spending. Lavielle has established herself as a voice for fiscal sanity! She helped author a budget plan that included NO tax increases and forced fiscal accountability. When her Democratic colleagues wouldn’t listen, she was back the following year. She is a true voice for fiscal reform, and we desperately need her leadership. Lori Bufano
