To the editor:
I was not surprised to learn that State Rep. Gail Lavielle has been selected as a "2014 CT League of Conservation Voter Environmental Champion," or that she has earned the group's endorsement for her reelection effort. I think the surprise would have been if she had not been selected, as Rep. Lavielle has been a tireless advocate for the environment, and for promoting sustainable solutions for some of our more serious problems.
For example, when Metro-North announced earlier this year that it would no longer provide "through-service" on the early morning Danbury Line, Rep. Lavielle understood the negative consequences - more cars on the highway, headed to better-serviced New Haven line stations. Rep. Lavielle led the charge and succeeded in having the service restored. She has also been a leader in protecting our open spaces, and our state's beautiful coastal resources.
For these reasons and so many more, I am proud to support Rep. Gail Lavielle's reelection efforts.
Sincerely, Gail Hanny
