In the 23rd District, I’m encouraging everyone to support State Rep. Devin Carney for re-election. Devin has always stood up for Lyme and Old Lyme and been a voice against government overreach and higher taxes.
Look no further than Devin’s fights against forced school regionalization or the federal railroad administration’s high speed rail proposal to see how much he advocates for our small towns. We deserve to have a strong voice at the Capitol and Devin has been there every step of the way.
Devin has worked incredibly hard to stop a lot of tax proposals over the years. He opposed new taxes on groceries, veterinary services, accounting services, legal services, and home sales. He helped stop a proposal that would have raised the property taxes on cars in Lyme and Old Lyme. As Ranking Member of the Transportation Committee, he got legislation through to prevent a mileage tax. Imagine being taxed by the mile? This is the type of dedication and service we need.
He’s also well-balanced. He has support from a wide variety of groups including The Independent Party of CT, the CT League of Conservation Voters, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and the CT Realtors. He’s also received recognition from the Connecticut Counseling Association, the Connecticut Marine Trades Association, and the Connecticut Business and Industry Association.
I can’t think of someone who has worked harder for us over the years and I hope voters will join me in supporting him this year for re-election.
