Citing recent votes cast by Representative Chris Wright, Art Mocabee, 2nd Vice Chairman for Connecticut Republicans called Wright ,"about as out of touch with Bristol residents as any legislator can ever be for the residents of his district", which is the northeast section of Bristol.
Representative Wright has cast more votes to increase taxes across the board to Bristol and all Connecticut residents. Mocabee said. " To cast a vote to put jobs at Bristol Hospital in jeopardy, is beyond common sense and logic, he is potentially putting people in his own district out of a job"
"It is unfortunate that Bristol residents have been betrayed by Representative Wright as he has become, as predicted, a rubber stamp for special interest groups. He has ignored the needs of Bristol residents and businesses with his reckless, ill though out votes to raise taxes, suspend tax credits to Bristol's largest employer and to work completed against the best interests of Bristol Hospital", Mocabee stated.
"We need someone who is intelligent enough to think for himself and to understand the needs of Connecticut residents and businesses during these trying economic times, and it certainly is not the current representative from the 77th. District, Mocabee said.
