Letter: O’Dea has earned re-election

Editor, Advertiser:
Tom O’Dea has well earned re-election as our state representative for the 125th District.
Moderate and civil, O’Dea has become a point person for bipartisan efforts, yet a distinguished leader in seeking to reverse the fiscal policies that have squandered Connecticut’s strength over years of one-party rule. While fully cognizant of the persistent appeal of additional revenue for our state, O’Dea does not share his opponent’s enthusiasm for tolls, recognizing that tolls are a regressive form of taxation that falls hardest on drivers least able to pay.
Of major importance, O’Dea completes an outstanding legislative team that includes Rep. Fred Wilms and Senators Toni Boucher and Scott Frantz. Together they provide a major strength for our communities and leadership needed in Hartford.
Given the challenges we face, let’s be sure we keep the first string in the game.
John W. Hetherington
Retired State Rep. District 125
