To the Editor:

A vote for Gail Lavielle this November will be a vote in support of restoring fiscal sanity to our state. And with so much at stake, Gail is exactly the right person for the job!

Gail has been a true advocate of fiscal reform during her two terms in office. She understands the precarious situation we find ourselves in – from $33 billion in unfunded liabilities, to businesses that have fled our excessive tax policies, to annual calls for more and more spending.

I have been impressed by Gail’s brand of thoughtful leadership. She has led the way on so many common sense solutions. She introduced legislation to stop the practice of raiding the state’s Transportation Fund to pay for non-transportation projects. She helped write a budget proposal that called for no new taxes, and forced some accountability. And how about this – she actually went door to door, talking to small business owners, asking how Hartford could do a better job of helping them prosper – and create more jobs.

Gail Lavielle deserves to be reelected, and I am pleased to give her my support.
