Retired teachers endorse Lavielle

The Association of Retired Teachers of Connecticut PAC has endorsed state Rep. Gail Lavielle (R-143) for re-election to the Connecticut House of Representatives. She is running for her fourth term in the General Assembly.

The association is a nonprofit organization of retired teachers with 16,000 members/affiliates advocating on behalf of Connecticut’s 33,000 retired teachers. It promotes the economic, professional, and social well being of Connecticut’s retired teachers.

“Connecticut’s teachers play a crucial role in ensuring the future of our students and our state, and I have enormous respect and admiration for them,” said Lavielle. “Many of my constituents are retired teachers, and it is a privilege to be an advocate for them, and for all of our senior citizens who are grappling with Connecticut’s taxes and high costs.

“I am honored by this endorsement, and I thank the Association of Retired Teachers of Connecticut for its continuing work on behalf of the teachers who have brought so much dedication, effort, and love to educating our children and to giving them the foundation they need to lead productive lives.”

Lavielle is ranking member of the General Assembly’s Education Committee and the Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Transportation. She is also a member of the Appropriations and Transportation committees.
