Fitzgerald picks up another endorsement
Press release from GOP state House hopeful Jill Fitzgerald, who is running for an open seat in northeast Bristol's 77th District:
Fitzgerald Endorsed by Protective Services Employees Coalition The Protective Services Employees Coalition (PSEC) has endorsed Republican 77th Assembly District candidate Jill Fitzgerald in her bid to succeed state Representative Ron Burns, who is not seeking re-election to the seat and has endorsed her candidacy. The PSEC represents 950 plus state employees in Connecticut who stand ready to protect your sons and daughters at Connecticut's Colleges and Universities, stand ready to protect Connecticut’s environment, the motoring and flying public as well as citizens under the care of many social service agencies. . PSEC members hail from virtually every community and district in Connecticut. “This endorsement from a union that represents state public safety personnel from throughout Connecticut means a lot to me,” Fitzgerald said. “Here in Bristol, I am a strong supporter of our dedicated firefighters and police officers, who are very visible in the community and sponsor a baseball league in Cambridge Park and a basketball league in the west end.” “We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your commitment and dedication to public service. We feel that the citizens of the State of Connecticut and our members will benefit greatly from your hard work and dedication. We look forward to supporting your efforts and working with you in the future on their behalf,” said Stanislaw Mieldziec, PSEC Political Action Committee Chairperson, and William J. Boucher, PSEC President and PSEC-PAC Treasurer, in a letter to Fitzgerald informing her of the union’s endorsement.
