Letter: ‘Ben shows every day what it means to make a difference’

To the Editor:

I am proud to support Ben McGorty for state representative and I am joined by leaders from throughout Shelton who believe in Ben’s commitment to serving our town. Republicans from every board and commission in Shelton have put their faith in and support behind Ben McGorty. Leaders in our business community have done the same.

As a state representative serving Shelton, I know first-hand what it takes to get things done both in Hartford and here at home. Ben has the talent and the character to be successful and I am eager to work closely with him to get things done for Shelton. Ben has committed his life to public service and to his family. As a volunteer firefighter and in his work with the Boys & Girls Club, Ben shows every day what it means to make a difference in the lives of others. I admire that greatly.

Ben and I love Shelton and its residents and together we will work hard to represent Shelton. I ask that you please support Ben McGorty in the Republican primary election on August 12.

Jason Perillo, State Representative, Shelton
