To the Editor:
I’m proud to support state Rep. Gary Turco for reelection because he has delivered on his promise to make smart investments in education.
By bringing back more than $1 million in new aid to our town, much of which was focused on school funding, he helped ensure a bright future for Newington students. In addition, these monies have helped to stabilize our property taxes. His commitment to education extends from our youngest learners to our postsecondary students.
When he protected the Care 4 Kids program, he made it possible for more Newington families to afford quality early child care. Rep. Turco’s efforts to garner funds for our new Transition Academy helped our most vulnerable learners get the resources they need. He has also worked to make college more affordable as well as to reduce student loan debt. These initiatives will help Newington’s young people secure their futures.
Because Rep. Turco has been a strong advocate for education in Newington, I ask that you join me in endorsing his reelection. He has proven to be a leader at the capitol and deserves our continued support.
