Election 2022: Letters of Endorsement recently received the following letter(s) to the editor. Please send letters to for publication here. ***
To the Editors –
I am writing in support of our Republican slate.  Up and down the ballot from Governor to State Representative, our candidates have the ideas and policies needed to make Connecticut an attractive place to live, work and visit. While I could highlight the many, detailed policy proposals presented by Republican candidates to address points of local concern, from reducing crime and taxes to ensuring parent’s rights and maintaining local control of schools, I am going to focus on one specific point of heightened interest to New Canaan residents at the moment – local control of planning and zoning. If you are worried about the effects of 8-30g and other measures that override New Canaan’s Planning and Zoning Board, there is only one party to support.  The Republicans legislators in Hartford have sponsored dozens of bills to amend and repeal 8-30g since the law was passed over 30 years ago.  The vast majority of these bills were killed in the Democrat-controlled Joint Committee on Housing before they got to the floor of the Assembly or Senate for a vote.  The only major amendment – a bill which made it easier for town’s to achieve a moratorium under 8-30g – passed in 2017, the high watermark for Republican representation in Hartford since 1989.
