To the editor:
State Rep. Matt Blumenthal, a Stamford native who represents the 147th District, is up for reelection this fall. Matt has military experience and a legal background which give him a unique perspective in Hartford. He is fiscally responsible and has supported our businesses, while rejecting the shift in teacher pensions to local municipalities. He supports science-based decision-making that has led our state to be a leader in keeping our COVID-19 infection rate low. He has improved public safety with gun laws, and helped state residents by supporting Absentee Ballots for all Connecticut residents this year.
