To the Editors:
In her Oct. 22 candidate statement, Kim Healy cites taxes and regulatory burdens as the reason Aetna, Alexion, and GE moved out of Connecticut. She is wrong. I spent 12 years as part of the senior executive team at Alexion, and I know that taxes and regulations had absolutely nothing to do with the company’s move. No company moves to Boston, Mass., because they are desperate for lower taxes and relaxed regulatory burden. (And by including Aetna in her list, Healy shows she deeply misunderstands that company’s circumstance).
