Sen. Boucher: What the Other Party Thinks about Me
November 16, 2017
This week I received the unsolicited letter below from one of my Democratic constituents, Dr. Margaret Reed. I share it with you because it brings to life what motivates me to keep fighting the “good fight” and inspires my current exploration for Governor in 2018.
Dr. Margaret A Reed
It has come to my attention that you are considering a run for the Office of Governor. I hope you do it! As a member of the “other” party, there comes a time to put partisan politics aside and ” do the right thing”. Connecticut needs you to set us back on the right track. You will have my complete support should you run. In many ways you remind me of Ella Grasso. I truly felt she was one of the very best Governors this state has ever seen. Just remember, in the end, we will be judged by our integrity, dedication, commitment and courage. I believe you have all 4.
Thanks for all you do – I know at times it seems like a thankless job – but there is no doubt you have always tried to do what’s best for your District and the State.
All the best,
What Dr. Reed’s sentiment demonstrates are the unique qualities that a Republican must posses to win over Democrats: specifically, the integrity, dedication, commitment and courage to fight for the changes our state needs. It’s because of these qualities that I’ve been able to win strong support from both parties and have been the highest vote getter of any contested state senator. And, make no mistake, this ability will be vital if we are to have the chance to win in a state where we as Republican are outnumbered 2:1.
