To the Editor:
I am writing in support of Mary Fortier, an outstanding candidate for the state senate in the 31st District.
Mary has been elected to multiple terms on the Bristol City Council. She is known for hard work, empathy and responsiveness.
Mary has the leadership skills to get things done through reasoned dialogue and collaboration. Mary’s priorities are right for the times.
As we navigate through a pandemic, she knows that there is a critical need to support small businesses such as the many that exist in our own district. She is a proponent of robust workforce development that will create good jobs now and for years to come. Mary is also a strong advocate for quality education and access to healthcare for all.
Mary Fortier can make a real difference in Hartford. As she said in a recent debate, Mary will work to give all residents the opportunity to both “survive and thrive.” I know that she will fulfill that commitment.
I urge voters in Bristol, Plymouth, Plainville, Thomaston and Harwinton to elect Mary Fortier.
