Floren is a treasure to have in office

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

For the past six years, I have had the pleasure of serving with Rep. Livvy Floren in the Connecticut General Assembly (CGA ).

What I have witnessed in these three legislative terms is that Livvy is a public servant who has the respect of her colleagues on both sides of the aisle in addition to the governor, both when it was a Republican in office and now a Democrat.

From Glenville to Banksville and from Round Hill to Riverbank, Livvy has been a steady voice for her constituents as well as a passionate advocate. She has proven that one can take an unwavering stand on an issue and do so in a way that does not lead to bad feelings with those on the other side of her position.

I have found that the key to legislative success is being a strong proponent of an idea, concept and/or legislative bill while respecting the opinions of others who may have a different view. This allows for consensus and the ability to work together on other issues down the road.

The people of the 149th State Assembly District have a treasure in Rep. Livvy Floren. The citizens of the state of Connecticut have a responsible and thoughtful member of the CGA in Livvy Floren. We, her colleagues, have a leader we all respect and admire.

She is, in the best sense, the “happy warrior” of the General Assembly.

I respectfully ask the good people of the 149th District to return my friend, and their champion, to Hartford to continue her good work on their behalf.
