It has been a pleasure and honor to be the Westport campaign manager for two of Connecticut's most actively engaged and highly productive state legislators: Sen. Toni Boucher and Rep. Gail Lavielle. Toni and Gail are both up for re-election this year and deserve our support because they have earned it. For the last three terms, Sen. Toni Boucher (who represents seven towns) has gained the respect and admiration of countless numbers of Westporters by listening and responding to their concerns. Because of her sterling reputation, she was the only Republican candidate to win in Westport in the 2010 election.

We will now have the good fortune of gaining Gail Lavielle as one of our State Representatives, as the 143rd district will for the first time include most of Westport west of the Saugatuck River. In addition to providing great constituent service, Gail over the last two years has introduced or co-sponsored 89 bills concerning transportation, taxation, education and environmental issues.

I have campaigned with Toni and Gail at a countless number of Westport homes,special events and community organizations. I am continually amazed at their tireless energy and command of the issues. We are indeed fortunate to have such dedicated, well informed, legislators who are so responsive to Westport matters. They truly are Superwomen and we need to keep them in our corner. Please vote for Toni and Gail on November 6th.
