She would bring a wealth of experience, incredible energy, honesty & intelligence to this moribund assortment of rubber stamps & sycophants for our now very unpopular tax-happy Governor Malloy. Without the effective participation of legislators such as Mrs. Ziobron would offer, the largest tax increases in Ct.'s history will crush the middle class - already a fait accompli according to VP Biden - and this simply has to be stopped & reversed where possible.
As a former member of East Haddam's Economic Development Commission, I had the pleasure of working closely with Melissa Ziobron who was our Economic Development Coordinator. Her ability to work with other important commissions (P&Z, Wetlands, WPCA, Selectman, Board of Finance, etc.) was astonishing & during her tenure, more was accomplished than ever before. Most of this work was directed atassisting local businesses & to bring in more companies to East Haddam. This is exactly the kind of experience desperately needed at the State level.
We also served together on the Elderly Tax Relief Committee & successfully created East Haddam's first tax relief ordinance for senior citizens whose incomes were below $50,000 I urge our seniors to vote for someone who understands their challenges & who knows how to do something about it!
Other boards & committees she served on are too numerous to mention here except to say she was also a powerful voice on the Board of Education for years & cares deeply about the education of our children.
To have a real fighter & advocate for education, our seniors, the middle class, & fiscal responsibility, vote for Melissa Ziobron on November 6th.
