Informs Voters of the Truth About Dan Roberti’s Lobbying Connections
LITCHFIELD, CT – Yesterday, in the final debate of the 5th District Democratic primary, Elizabeth Esty proved once again that she’s the best candidate to keep the 5th District blue in November and bring common sense to Washington. The hour-long debate, hosted by the Litchfield County League of Women Voters, covered a number of critical issues including manufacturing, energy, the environment, and the housing crisis.
“It was plain to see that Elizabeth has the right experience, knowledge of the key issues, and understanding of the stakes folks across central and northwest Connecticut are facing to best represent the 5th District,” Esty spokesman Jeb Fain said. “More and more, voters are responding to her message of practical problem-solving to bring common sense to Washington and get our economy back on track.”
“I got into this race because I felt that there was too much finger-pointing and bickering in Washington and not enough accountability,” Esty said in her closing statement. “We are having problems with special interests stacking the deck against the middle class, and we need people who understand what our communities need…I would be honored to be your voice in Washington.”
Esty also took the opportunity to inform voters about Dan Roberti’s co-ownership in a Washington special interest lobbying firm and the shady Super PAC funded by his firm’s clients for the sole purpose of buying him a Congressional seat. Roberti’s Super PAC is currently airing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of issue-less negative smears against fellow Democrats with money raised in unlimited amounts from donors they refuse to disclose.
Jean Rabinow of the Connecticut League of Women voters moderated the debate which is airing repeatedly on CT-N. It can be viewed online at http://www.ctn.state.ct.us/ondemand.asp.
