I don't usually pay attention to candidates for lieutenant governor, but I am this year. I cannot stomach the idea of another four years of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and I want to make sure we have the best Republican ticket possible to win in November. My choice is Heather Somers, a Hartford outsider who has created dozens of manufacturing jobs in eastern Connecticut.
Heather hasn't been a part of the problem in Hartford. She has served on the local level, successfully passing two tax decreases in Groton. The worst thing we as Republicans could do is nominate Penny Bacchiochi for lieutenant governor. Just this year Penny accused other Republicans of racism and took big money from pro-marijuana DC lobbyists.
This August I'm casting my vote for a leader from the private sector and the local level who has been a solid Republican candidate -Heather Somers.
