I love our district, Connecticut, and America. We need diverse voices and ideas, someone who will represent all of us. Not a career politician who tows the party line.
My experience as a West Hartford Town counselor and senior executive will prove invaluable as a congresswoman. My proven track record shows I know how to balance a budget, collaborate with the Democrats, and strive hard to do the right thing.
As a moderate, I choose the best ideas, regardless of party origination. My laser focus will be on our district, to make sure our needs are addressed, and your concerns are heard. I would be proud to represent Connecticut’s First District.
