To The Editor:
For the past ten years, I have known and had the pleasure of working with our State Representative, Marilyn Giuliano. Whether small business or small children, Marilyn has worked tirelessly for the betterment of our community.
Along with the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, Marilyn hosted the first ever home-based business forum in Old Saybrook. She co-sponsored the Small Business Express Package, in a special legislative session, to help many of our small businesses. She was also able to cut the business entity tax in half, and began to eliminate the governmental red tape that makes Connecticut so business unfriendly.
Marilyn also serves on the legislature’s Education Committee and was recently appointed serve on the Closing the Achievement Gap Task Force. Earlier this year, the Connecticut Early Childhood Alliance recognized Marilyn as a “Children’s Champion” for ushering legislation aimed at improving outcomes for young children, taking special interest in the issues facing young children, and engaging with advocates on early childhood issues.
Given Marilyn’s drive and dedication for and her experience with issues that concern the residents of Lyme, Old Lyme, Westbrook and Old Saybrook, I can think of no one better to serve as our State representative.
