Letter: Boucher a friend, advocate
Published 10:27 am, Friday, October 19, 2012
I feel privileged to call Toni Boucher my friend for over 20 years after meeting when our sons became fast friends in first grade. Over the years, Toni and I have shared events in our lives: some sorrowful, such as the deaths of our parents; and many joyful, the marriages of our children and births of her grandchildren. I know Toni personally to be a woman of valor; energetic, righteous and capable.
I have witnessed Toni champion her passions with boundless energy from the local level on the Wilton Board of Education to the state level as our State Representative, and the last four years as our State Senator. Toni has compassion and empathy, whether it be towards her friends or constituents in need. Her ability to be personally available to her constituents given her full schedule is frankly amazing. And, she gets results.
She has advocated on behalf of small business owners and Metro North commuters, as well as for excellence in education reform and our environment.
I wholeheartedly support Toni Boucher for another term as our State Senator. As constituents, we are all lucky to have Toni as a friend and advocate in the state senate.
