To the Editor:

It was really eye opening to see the reaction of the three Democratic candidates for Mayor in response to Mayor Erin Stewart's recent call for significant reforms to Connecticut's juvenile justice laws.

Robert Sanchez and Veronica DeLandro chose to personally attack the Mayor. In her statement, Alicia Strong advocates for defunding the police.

I hope the voters of New Britain remember this moment when they cast their ballots on Nov. 2. The choice is clear. If you want safe neighborhoods, if you want a government that will support our police officers, you must vote to re-elect Mayor Erin Stewart and the entire Republican team.
