Editor, The Cheshire Herald:
I would like to take this opportunity to let your readers know how grateful I am for the tireless work of Representative Liz Linehan. During the past three months, she has been providing regular updates and helpful information to the public from scientists and medical experts at the forefront of the COVID epidemic.
While other elected officials have been pointing fingers and playing politics, Linehan has continued to be the only Cheshire representative focused on providing facts, rather than unproductive rhetoric. I understand that the Republicans are unhappy with Lamont, but complaining and throwing tantrums does not benefit the citizens of this state. Representative Linehan has been busy solving unemployment insurance issues for her constituents, locating food and financial assistance for those in need, helping constituents enroll in health insurance, and facilitating PPE deliveries to local businesses.
Representative Linehan’s regular informative updates during the crisis showed calm, steady leadership that was desperately needed. During these uncertain times, Liz has truly demonstrated leadership that cares about the health and financial stability of her constituents. That’s the leadership we need at the state level. Leadership that cares. Thank you, Liz.
