Letter to the Editor: Carney Supports Small Business; Works to Make CT More Affordable, Increase Job Opportunities

To the Editor:

As someone who is self-employed, I always keep up with Connecticut’s business and fiscal policies. Over the past several years, the legislature has raised taxes and increased business mandates making it harder for a lot of businesses to survive here. The outbreak of COVID has certainly not helped and I’ve got a lot of concerns for the future of our economy.

One person who I know supports small businesses is Devin Carney. Devin has always advocated for smart fiscal policies that will reduce costs to the State of Connecticut. He supported eliminating the business entity tax, opposed proposals that would create taxes on accounting and legal services, and stopped the mileage tax. As a member of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee, Devin serves as a fiscal watchdog and a strong voice for us against higher taxes.

As a father and grandfather, I want Connecticut to be a place where young people want to move – and Devin wants the same. He has always worked to make Connecticut more affordable and to increase job opportunities. He’s been a strong advocate for increased training for in-demand opportunities in manufacturing and the trades.

We cannot have someone representing us who will make life more expensive for folks living in Lyme, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, and Westbrook. And that’s why I’m supporting Devin. He has always been there for us focused on the district and I know he will continue to be.

I wholeheartedly support Devin’s re-election and hope you will do the same.


Pete Friel,
Old Lyme.
