Marx will bring fire in representing New London that Formica lacks
Last year, Connecticut passed a landmark piece of legislation to produce up to two gigawatts of electricity from offshore wind facilities, one of the most impressive investments in renewable energy anywhere in the nation. The two locations that could accommodate this project were Bridgeport and New London. For local state Sen. Paul Formica, defending New London should have been a no brainer. Instead, he was a no-show.
In the end Bridgeport got the lion’s share of new opportunities and New London was left with scraps. Paul added insult to injury by writing a completely baffling November op-ed in the Connecticut Post with Bridgeport´s Mayor Joe Ganim. Paul congratulated him for taking hundreds of jobs away from his own district!
If Formica does not even remember who he is representing, it is time for someone who will be a fierce advocate for our region to replace him. We cannot accept absenteeism in a time of crisis and Paul is clearly not up for the challenge ahead.
Martha Marx is the fierce advocate we need. I encourage everyone in the 20th Senate District to vote for her to bring some real fire back to our representation in Hartford.
