I have not been involved in politics for a long time. It’s been about two years since I took a keen interest in what was happening in my community, and one year since I was elected to Seymour’s Board of Selectmen. In that time, I have been lucky enough to meet just about every local official in the area. Though it has been an incredible honor and experience to personally meet and speak with both of our Senators and our Congressperson, nobody I’ve met in politics has ever impressed me more than Theresa Conroy. Fortunately for me and the 105th District, Theresa is ours.

The partisan politics we are seeing at the national level is just as prevalent at the state level. The majority party Democrats have controlled the state legislature for the past 38 years. During this time, the minority party Republicans have been locked out of budget negotiations.
Our current state representative, Theresa Conroy, has been part of the partisan divide in Hartford. Rep. Conroy and her party leadership have failed to balance the state’s budget, even though they passed the second largest tax increase in our state’s history.

State Representative Theresa Conroy has misrepresented the facts to the residents of Seymour, Beacon Falls, and Derby this election cycle. Representative Conroy is painting a rosy picture of Connecticut and asking you to believe that things are just fine. Unfortunately, this is a total distortion of reality.
The true reality is Connecticut is ranked almost last in every national ranking from business friendliness to the cost of living. These bottom of the barrel rankings occurred from out-of-control spending by Representative Conroy, the Democratic controlled majority and her friend Governor Dan Malloy.

At one point during a public forum Tuesday at Derby Middle School Janine Netto, a member of the Derby school board, walked to the podium and asked a question.
How many people wanted to put a new baseball field in Witek Park?
About 140 people didn’t make a sound.
How many people want a baseball complex behind the Bradley School?

All of the local politicians gathered for a photo op at Griffin Hospital Tuesday could agree on one thing: it’s good that the state provided $1.3 million to the fund research at the hospital’s Multiple Sclerosis Research Center.
But what the money — and the eve-of-election timing of its release — means in the bigger picture depends on who you ask.

Theresa Conroy may have an office in Hartford, but her heart and soul are in the Valley.
Theresa has an impressive record of securing state dollars for local projects including the fields at Seymour High, Beacon Falls’ green energy project and Derby’s downtown revitalization. Each of these projects received state funds thanks in part to Theresa’s tireless work for good economic development in the Valley.
