Rarely in politics do we find someone that works genuinely for the people, someone that rises above petty bickering and cuts through the web of private and limited interests we find so abundant even here in our local government. Christine Goupil is this rare someone.
Over the past six years I have had the privilege to know her well and have during that time developed a genuine admiration for her work professionally and for her character. Plain and simple, when Christine wins, voters win. Her dedication is to the community and to the community alone. She knows what needs to be done and more importantly, she knows how to do it. She knows where to get the town the funding it needs to bring developments to life; she knows how to negotiate on our behalf in Hartford.
Six years ago Christine was instrumental in the creation of Clinton’s ten year Plan of Conservation and Development. Her experience in project management brought an ambitious long term vision and the knowledge of the steps to achieve it. Planning and Zoning is not an easy world to navigate, but Christine rose above that in her eight years volunteering, and stepped up to run as first selectman to lead us to a new form of government because she knew it was critical to the success of our community and what the voters wanted.
When we vote for Chrisitne Goupil for State Representative on November 3rd, we vote for someone who will truly, professionally, and with experience represent the voters of Clinton, Killingworth and Westbrook in Hartford.
