Westport Letter: Lavielle's Absence Speaks Volumes

Photo Credit:

WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to westport@dailyvoice.com.

To the editor:

It is disheartening to hear that state Rep. Gail Lavielle (R-Wilton, Westport, Norwalk) has turned down an invitation to Westport’s regular candidate forums at Earthplace and the Westport Chamber of Commerce. It is important that Fairfield County’s business and environmental justice communities be allowed to question her record.

Lavielle’s justification on voting to lower fines for polluters needs to see the light of day. Her nationally recognized anti-environmental activism against keyconsumer protections like labeling toxins on children’s products is also well-deserving of public scrutiny on the local level.

Her lifelong advocacy on behalf of large, out-of-state corporations like WalMart and Philip Morris instead of Connecticut’s own businesses and residents merits deep examination. For a legislator who is everywhere all the time her absence speaks volumes here in Westport and across the 143rd in Norwalk and WIlton. Sal Liccione
