We, the undersigned, are very concerned about the economic prospects for our state and in particular our towns and cities in eastern Connecticut. While prosperity has reached many parts of our state, for too long when it comes to sustainable economic development and modern transportation networks, eastern Connecticut has been left behind.
To ensure that the people and long-term interests of eastern Connecticut are remembered at the highest levels of state government, we encourage you to consider a person from eastern Connecticut for Lt. Governor. We also urge you to appoint a Cabinet level officer to be charged with developing and implementing economic growth and diversification plans for eastern Connecticut.
The letter is signed by the DTC chairs of fifteen eastern CT towns, stretching from Somers to Stonington.
The last Lt. Gov. candidate from this region was Joe Courtney in 1998.
