To the Editor:
Recently, State Representative Cara Pavalock-Dâ€™Amato was recorded in a video promoting Republican Mayoral Candidate Jeff Caggiano.
In this video, she says, â€śLeadership is about lifting those around you up, not putting others downâ€¦â€ť This, coming from a State Rep who wrote a note to a constituent just last year calling them a â€śforeclosed loserâ€ť presumably on her note paper featuring a â€śCâ€ť assumed to be for â€śCaraâ€ť.
These professionally produced, scripted videos will not fool those of us that know the Republicans are running on nothing. â€śHe has a plan to cut City spendingâ€ť but doesnâ€™t provide any details on that plan.
Letâ€™s face it, Bristol Republicans continue to support the â€śunmask our kidsâ€ť â€“ or shall I say â€śput our kids in danger at schoolâ€ť â€“ initiative. They donâ€™t support free lunch for all school children which is paid for by State and Federal funding whether we take advantage of it in Bristol or not. By the way, this program actually saves the BOE budget around $400k per year in expenses associated with collecting cash and charging students for lunch.
This Administration has brought us to a position of inclusivity rather than division. They have led us through unprecedented times and have done so with the best interest of Bristol and Bristolâ€™s residents at the forefront. The answer is simple; get out and get everyone you know out to vote for our Democratic Mayor and City Council on Nov. 2 so we can continue to make a positive impact on our community.
