DeSanctis would help bring balance to Hartford

To the Editor:

I was very excited to see that Chris DeSanctis is running for State representative in Fairfield’s 133rd legislative district.

The majority party in Hartford has controlled almost two out of every three seats in the legislature for decades. This is not good news for the taxpayers of Fairfield. Even The New York Times weighed in on this issue years ago and today not much has changed: “The Republican presence in both houses of the General Assembly has slowly withered over the last several years. The Republicans have not controlled the State Senate in 10 years or the State House in 20.” “This is not healthy for either of the two major parties in Connecticut and it is terrible for the state …” “One-party rule is for politburos, not democracies.”

This is one reason, among many, why I’m hopeful Fairfield residents will support Chris DeSanctis for state representative. We need more balance between the two parties in our state legislature and greater fiscal accountability. DeSanctis will bring both, and is the kind of change Hartford has needed for many years.
