Sen. Boucher Endorsed by Major Connecticut Business Group
Message from Senator Toni Boucher:
I’m pleased to inform you that the Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA) has endorsed my campaign for re-election.
CBIA is a leading advocacy group for business and industry in Connecticut with thousands of member companies. Their mission is to champion policy within the state that will make Connecticut’s economy more competitive regionally, nationally and globally.
In it’s statement, Joseph F. Brennan, President and CEO of CBIA, said, “In your time in the legislature, you have shown a strong commitment to promoting an environment where companies can compete, attract much-needed investment to our state, and drive economic growth and job creation.” He added,“We appreciate your willingness to work with the business community and look forward to working together over the next two years to reduce the cost of government, make Connecticut more affordable, and make this an even better state to live, work and raise a family.”
I am proud to receive this recognition from the CBIA. Our number one priority right now is to turn around Connecticut’s economy and make our state, once again, a place where business can compete and families can work and prosper. To accomplish this we must focus on lowering taxes on families and businesses, reducing our burdensome state regulations and eliminating wasteful government spending.
