Two years ago, I was honored to be elected to serve as your state Representative.  I committed then to serving each member of our community and maximizing our collective potential. 

I hit the ground running in my first term and sponsored bills to defend women’s healthcare and reproductive services, protect and support the mental health of our children, boost small businesses, reduce carbon emissions, deal with our opioid crisis, and support our veterans, to name a few.

 I am proud of our accomplishments of the past two years, including:
•    $650 million in tax cuts for families and small businesses
•    Increased hours of mandatory direct care for residents of long-term care facilities
•    Increased funding and toughened penalties to address vehicle theft and made it harder to resell catalytic converters
•    Expanded the tax credit for property owners from 200k to 300k to increase eligibility for tax relief
•    Preserved the Medicare savings program meant to offset the cost of prescription drugs, doctor’s visits, and supplemental insurance premiums
•    Brought an unprecedented $486 thousand to Ridgefield Public Schools

My opponent has chosen to run a negative campaign, featuring baseless attacks.  I’m going to let his words speak for themselves; they say more about him than they do about me.

I believe I’ve earned your trust and delivered on my promises.  If I am fortunate enough to be re-elected, I’ll continue to have honest conversations with you about the real problems we face, to advocate for policies that make Ridgefield and Connecticut more affordable for seniors, families, young people, and small businesses, and to find clear, workable solutions that benefit us all.

I respectfully ask for your support on Election Day, but regardless of who you choose to support, please get out and vote on November 8th.  

Aimee Berger-Girvalo
State Representative
111th District
