Former State Sen. endorses Perillo

I hope Shelton Republicans will join me in voting for Jason Perillo in the primary for State Representative on Tuesday, Aug. 9.

I have known Jason for many years – both serving with him when I was State Senator and as a friend in our community.  Jason is more than a good legislator—he is a good person.  He fights for what he believes in, but he is not just up in Hartford to debate policy positions.  Yes, he is working against the job-destroying policies of the Malloy administration, and advocating lower tax, pro-economic growth policies.  But he is doing so much more than that.

Jason is there fighting for you, trying to make things better for your family.  He is going to return your call personally when you call his office for help, and do everything in his power to solve your problem.  I’m supporting Jason not just because he fights for our shared Republican values, but because he is the type of person I believe we need in public office – honest, compassionate, and doing this for the right reasons.

Jason’s opponent offers nothing more than personal ambition as a reason to elect her.  Jason offers what we want in all our leaders.  I know August 9th is an odd day to come out to vote—but it is crucial we keep dedicated leaders like Jason Perillo if office.  Fellow Republicans -- join me in supporting a true friend of Shelton.
