Floren has shown why she is the very best

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Every gray cloud has a silver lining, according to my grandmother.

When my column for Hearst Newspapers was so suddenly and unceremoniously canceled last month, the silver lining that emerged is my freedom to heartily and enthusiastically endorse my dear friend, State Rep. Livvy Floren, for a resounding victory on Nov. 4.

As a former colleague and caucus leader, I watched Livvy grow into an outstanding legislator and networker. Giving fine speeches is less than 5% of a successful legislator’s time on task. The most effective legislators spend the majority of their time working the back channels, making personal calls, meeting face-to-face with key folks, quietly shaping the big issues to benefit the most citizens, and rallying colleagues to the cause.

The old saying that “organizing legislators to move in a single direction (however worthy) is like herding cats,” is not just funny. It is absolutely true. Our State Rep. Livvy Floren of the 149th District is one of the very best under the Capitol dome and Greenwich and Stamford benefit from her hard work every single day.

Cast your vote for State Rep. Livvy Floren with pride, secure in the knowledge that you will be represented by the very best.
