Consistently Involved

I am pleased to support State Representative Devin Carney (R-23) for a fourth term. Public service at the local level is a tough job. It requires the candidate to be consistently involved with timely issues important to the people of his or her district.

For the past six years, Devin has done this admirably. He is what you want in a state representative: He is easily approachable and works hard for all the towns of the 23rd District. Whether it’s one person’s concern or a problem confronting a large organization, Devin is readily available to listen and provide assistance.

Devin has gained leadership responsibilities in the General Assembly on the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee, where he is a ranking member of the Transportation Bonding Subcommittee. Devin has recently been selected to serve on the important Planning and Development Committee, which oversees regional planning, housing, conservation, and economic development.

As a life-long Democrat, I respectfully encourage your readers to disregard party affiliation and re-elect Devin Carney to the Connecticut Legislature this November.
