Has Created Jobs

I am pleased to write this letter of endorsement for Cindy Cartier for State Senate. Over the past six years, I have fought against the erosion of government finances in Hartford. Sadly, the Democrats have recklessly increased spending by more than a billion dollars in the most fragile economic market and, despite raising $3.5 billion in new taxes, our budget continues to fall into deficit and jobs continue to shrink. Most recently, Governor Dannel Malloy announced that he will not rule out another tax increase in January.

As a business owner, I'm tired of fighting the economy to stay afloat. Cindy Cartier gets it. She has served in local public office for two decades. She is a mom, daughter, aunt, and niece, and she has created jobs by opening two businesses in the worst economic climate in modern history. I am confident that Cindy will bring the same passion that I have brought to Hartford in order to control government spending and fight against Malloy's impending tax increases.

I encourage your readers to join me in supporting Cindy Cartier for State Senate. Connecticut truly needs her voice in Hartford.
