I received an email from state Rep. Lavielle the other day, advising me that portions of I-95 would be closed due to scheduled maintenance. I was struck by the note because it was the latest example of the top-notch constituent service that we've come to expect from Gail.

With Gail as our representative, I genuinely feel connected to what's going on in Hartford. She sends out regular updates that provide thorough recaps of legislative activity.

And here in town, Gail is always around, and always happy to stop and chat. I know that her official duties keep her busy in Hartford, yet Gail makes time to be present in town and at all community events.

It's so important for our legislators to understand the concerns and priorities of the voters. Gail has done a tremendous job of staying in touch, and of keeping us informed.
