James Maroney, Candidate for State Senate
The voters of Milford, Orange, West Haven and Woodbridge have come to expect a senator who will support the middle class, protect the environment, and fight for effective education.
Connecticut faces serious challenges. Too many students are leaving our state after graduation from college. Our budget situation needs to be addressed in a responsible way that funds our infrastructure and preserves the safety net. And we must enact policies that will boost wages and support economic growth.
As a former state representative and a small business owner, I have the right combination of experience to tackle these issues.
Mary Welander, Candidate for State Representative for the 114th District
I was taught the value of public service and hard work. I believe in a commitment to families and the ability for people to create a better life for themselves. I believe that our strengths lie in our differences and our future will be brighter if we embrace new ideas while respecting our history.
Cindy Boynton, Candidate for State Representative for the 117th District
To make change, I wanted to transition from advocate to vote maker. We need legislators in Hartford who, instead of patching holes, are looking for long-term, lasting, responsible solutions for the economy and the many other complex issues our state and residents are grappling with. I want to create a Connecticut that better cares for, and respects, our elderly; that provides a limitless future for every child; and that provides more opportunities, and a better quality of life, for everyone.
I am committed to justice, respect and equality. I will also make working across party lines a priority, so that “people — and not politics — come first.”
That’s the kind of legislator I will be: one who brings people together, truly listens to her constituents and works hard to create a better quality of life.
Ellen Beatty, Candidate for State Representative for the 119th District
I have been blessed in life with a wonderful husband, three successful sons, three beautiful grandchildren and a career that has included myriad opportunities to serve and to learn.
As the first woman to be Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU), I believe my proven track record in fiscal management, strategic planning and consensus building is critically needed in Hartford. I have used these skills to help reduce costs and keep taxes low during two terms as an Alder in Milford.
My goal is to utilize my extensive professional background and experience to help improve communities. I will be an advocate in creating policies that help women and families to work safely, have access to quality healthcare and safe and effective schools, and to live in safe, environmentally healthy neighborhoods. As a tenured professor of nursing and a current Faculty Emerita of Public Health at SCSU, I have been an advocate for health care and education as critical investments for thriving communities.
I am action-oriented and like to solve problems to overcome community challenges. As an elected representative, I listen, learn, share and educate for the best interests of my constituents. I take the obligation to be just, benevolent, and honest very seriously.
I look forward to working with the people of Milford and Orange in the 119th District to bring effective solutions to the challenges we face.
