Shaban Can't Run From His Record

The following is a letter to the editor.

To the Editor:

John Shaban can’t run from his voting record. He recently called The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters a “special interest group” but the truth is the CTLCV is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization “dedicated to protecting Connecticut's environment by making it a priority for our elected leaders.”

Rep. Shaban’s environmental votingrecord is not just bad, it is the second worst record in the entire state and stands in stark contrast with our Republican incumbent Senator Toni Boucher, who scored 100%, and who along with fellow Republican John McKinney, the Senate Minority Leader, were both named “Environmental Champions” by the CTLCV.

On the other hand RepShaban’s opponent, Leon Karvelis, has been endorsed by the Sierra Club. When trying to decide who to vote for for Connecticut State Representative, you need look no further than Rep. Shaban’s voting record.

Google special interest group. The Wikipedia definition exact matches the description of your group. It impresses me that john Shaban always tells it like it is. You may or may not like his stand on one narrow issue, but he's the most active and effective representative our town has had in years. He communicates well, makes it a point to attend tons of community events, is totally accessible, and is a practical conservative. Your attach of him is way off base.
