Dan Carter, who is challenging U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s re-election in November, sent the following statement to the Valley Indy after a press conference held Monday at which Blumenthal said he is working to keep a maintenance contract for presidential helicopters at Sikorsky Aircraft in Connecticut.
Once again Connecticut loses jobs to Florida. And the best Dick Blumenthal can do is pen a letter to the Secretary of the Navy asking him to reconsider.
Instead, maybe Senator Blumenthal should send a letter to Governor Malloy and Democrats in the legislature asking them to embrace economic policies that make Connecticut a better place to grow business and create jobs.
