It didn’t take me long to figure out who to support this election for state representative for the 36th District. At the debate, State Representative Phil Miller (D-36) was polished and professional. Phil is the right choice to continue to represent us in Hartford. He has been an influential voice for us as the chair of the Planning & Development Committee, and he has our small Connecticut River Valley well represented.
Phil has worked to secure funding, meeting with the Office of Policy and Management, and supporting Valley Shore Emergency Communications (VSECI) grant application. The group seeks creation of a multi-site UHF simulcast system to provide better communications for volunteer firefighters and medical technicians among the towns.
Rep. Philip Miller introduced a bill in the House of Representatives backed by local lawmakers and advocates that aims to improve water services to residents of the Tylerville section of Haddam.
The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) has named Phil a “Legislative Champion” for his support of environmental issues considered by the General Assembly this year.
Many people have told me they have phoned our representative and state senator, and Phil always returns the call and tries to help them with their problem whatever it may be. Phil is approachable, inclusive, and very successful in helping resolve problems.
Phil has the experience to work across the aisle, and has many avenues to help cut the red tape in Hartford and help pave the way to a better future. I hope your readers will join me in re-electing Phil Miller to the 36th District on Nov. 8.
