To the Editor:
I write this letter in support of State Representative Marilyn Giuliano for the House Assembly seat in the 23rd District. I have known Marilyn for nearly fifteen years. Going back to her days on the Board of Finance here in Old Saybrook, Marilyn has always been a vigilant defender and advocate for the residents of Old Saybrook. Now as State Representative, Marilyn does the same for her District, which includes Old Lyme, Lyme, Old Saybrook and parts of Westbrook. In my prior position as Chairman of Old Saybrook’s Board of Finance and now as First Selectman, Marilyn is always available to speak to important issues affecting our Town and region. She has continuously updated me on important legislation that affects or MIGHT affect our Town, giving the Town an opportunity to appropriate advocate for or against bills that could help or hurt our Town. Marilyn is famous for her citizen contact: I have been at numerous functions with Marilyn where one person after another approaches Marilyn and says: “Thanks for returning my call.” We are truly lucky to have such a dedicated public servant who represents our values here. Whether the issue is jobs, the environment, education or transportation, Marilyn Giuliano is my choice for representation from the 23rd District.
First Selectman, Old Saybrook
