Pragmatic, Passionate, and Tireless Advocacy

I support the re-election of Christine Palm for State Representative in the 36th Assembly District. Christine champions positions that benefit our community with her pragmatic, passionate, and tireless advocacy. More importantly, due to her ability to work with all of her colleagues, Christine Palm turns those promises into policy and practice.

Thanks to her support and her votes, the early voting referendum will be on the ballot in November and same-day registration is protected; climate teaching is part of our public school curriculum, the new Office of Aquatic Invasive Species is protecting our waterways, and Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) is banned; The Reproductive Freedom Defense Act protects abortion providers and patients; The “red flag” gun law is on the books and “ghost guns” are banned; teachers received paid sick leave during COVID, frontline workers received special relief funding, and our art and culture institutions have received life-saving grants. Palm has also helped to establish the child tax credit, enhanced protections for LGBTQ+ persons, enhanced educational opportunities for our veterans, funding for firefighters and employment protection for police officers. These accomplishments benefit all Connecticut residents.

Representative Palm’s leadership has improved our healthcare, employment opportunities, finances, family needs, education, and the environment.

Returning Christine Palm to House is essential so she can continue her work. We need representatives who have experience and a proven record of public service.

Every vote counts. I hope you will join me in voting to re-elect State Representative Christine Palm.
