Vote for Dathan, she’s always there to help

When Tip O’Neil, the former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, coined the phrase “all politics is local” he could hardly have imagined how prescient that comment would be in the divisive politics of 2020.

It is a quote that State Representative Lucy Dathan has taken to heart.  Although she is constantly involved in legislation that concerns the entire state, Lucy understands what is important to her local constituents.  Whether it be helping hold Eversource accountable for its inadequate response to Tropical Storm Isaias, helping constituents navigate the great financial and other burdens placed on them by the coronavirus pandemic, or dealing with local traffic issues on the New Canaan and Norwalk border, it is all personal to Lucy, and she is always there to help.  It is no surprise that when some elderly constituents found it hard to get masks, Lucy brought some right to their doors!

As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, Lucy has brought her extensive finance and entrepreneurial experience to help revitalize the State’s economy and attract and retain businesses.  She has worked hard to help small businesses and individuals navigate the State’s bureaucracy and introduced a first-of-its-kind workforce training authority to guarantee that Connecticut has the best trained workforce.  To address the recent economic downturn, Lucy has helped constituents with their unemployment and small business loan issues and also helped freelancers apply for relief through a program that provides financial assistance to “gig” workers.

Lucy is always available when we, as members of the Norwalk Common Council, need help from the State, and we look forward to continuing to work with her in her second term.

I’m really really tired..I’m tired of the half truths and political speak from the current party in charge. I hope I’m not the only one really really tired. This is getting old.
Let’s start at the beginning: Eversource is regulated by the political party in charge. They can’t tie their shoelaces without govt approval. Where has the oversight been? Shouldn’t the overseers be fired.
As far as CT economy: We are creating lots of $15/hr jobs but losing $100k jobs. I’m sure Lucy is smart enough to know current elected leaders at the helm get an F for that
Independence: Lucy backing Duff without having all the facts demonstrate’s she’s tied to party and not her district.
Personality: She’s a terrific person, but I wish she left her California politics in California
Note to Tom and Lisa: As representatives of District E, how many times have you driven past Fox Run School over the past 6 months? Every non rainy night there have been cars illegally parked on the grassy field. There are constantly
30-40 adults playing basketball in what must be a covid-free zone. No masks. If you’re going to represent district E at least drive around the neighborhood. Fox Run School has had issues with illegally parked cars and illegal road into basketball courts for 4 years now. I can’t believe I’m the only one tired of all this. So instead of telling us who to vote for how about straightening out issues on Fillow Street first.

One more time since no surrogates seem to be able to answer……

Does Lucy Dathan still support her bill she put in last session that requires local school districts to put women’s hygiene products for free into boy’s bathrooms? This is estimated to cost Norwalk Public Schools $250,000 before expenses related to overtime janitorial and plumbing work. Is this the only unfunded mandate she supports, or are there others?

Thanks.
