Livvy Floren inspires future leaders

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I believe that Livvy Floren has done an exceptional job as our state representative from the 149th District and ask that you support her in the upcoming election with your vote.

I am the chairman of the Representative Town Meeting’s Transportation Committee and appreciate the way Livvy Floren keeps our local officials aware of the happenings in Hartford that could impact Greenwich. She also attends many of our local homeowner association meetings to discuss legislative activities.

In addition to all her governmental work, Livvy takes time to inspire the youth of our town by being involved with the American Legion Boys and Girls State program. This involves selecting several high school students to attend a weeklong summer program during which they form a mock state government and propose legislation to the group. The learning experience that the students have at this program is amazing. My daughter attended the program in 2013 and was ultimately selected to represent Connecticut at Girls Nation in Washington, D.C.

I have met several people in our local government and even a relative who attended this program in other states that have since gone on to careers in law, the military or politics. The amazing part of Livvy Floren’s involvement in this program is that she does it for virtually no recognition, as many of the students are too young to vote. Livvy does get a small round of applause each year at one of the RTM meetings when the students who attend the Boys and Girls State program are introduced, but her own satisfaction in inspiring future leaders must be thanks enough for her to continue involvement in the program.

All politics is local and Livvy Floren is the best of our locality. Please support her in the November election.
