Reelect Bryan Hurlburt

Bryan Hurlburt works hard for Tolland


Despite the partisan rhetoric and negative campaign ads that
seem to dominate this election season, it is good to know that our State
Representative Bryan Hurlburt has always avoided using such tactics and has a
reputation for working with legislators from both political parties to get
things done. Rather than engaging in name-calling or obstruction, Bryan reaches
out to Republican and Democratic colleagues alike to develop policies that will
better our state. 

For those of you who know Bryan like I do, he is a true
advocate for civility in both government and political campaigns.  He consistently promotes civic engagement
through an active discussion of policies and issues that face our state, so
residents are informed and can collectively help make decisions about our

So when I walk in to vote on November 6th, I will
be voting for State Representative Bryan Hurlburt to continue being our voice
in Hartford.

Bryan Hurlburt is a very nice young man. I can not argue about his character or his demeanor, I can state that Bryan did vote for the retro-active tax increase. He also voted in favor of the budget that we can not afford. If I was voting to have a firend over for dinner Bryan would indeed get my vote, but I am not. I am voting for someone to reign in spending and take control in Hartford. Mr. Hurlburt is part of the problem and not part of the solution. If a rock would run for this seat I would vote for it, knowing it would cause less harm then Mr, Hurlburt has caused. I am voting against Bryan Hurlburt and I beg my friends and neighbors to do the same.

Well put Emily. I couldn't agree more

Keep up the geat work Rick! I hope a discussion can keep on moving forward, past the talking points and repeating lines as demeaning as "I'd vote for a rock over X because the rock would do 'less harm' than X". It does nothing for the discussion other than bringing about the same nastiness Bryan's fought against on a consistent basis. Perhaps aside from believing one issue should decide your vote, we should talk about the entirety of Bryan's last two years: Protecting the rights of shelter animals and pet owners, supporting a nearly unanimous jobs bill, fighting for stronger emergency storm response and greater accountability for our energy providers, supporting education policies heralded as a national framework, and so much more.

Do you really need more than supporting the largest tax increase in Connecticut history? How about supporting Sustinet? The increases to the minimum wage which has made it nearly impossible for high school kids to get work now. Voting for home health care providers to be forced to unionize. How about authorizing absentee voting for ANY reason? The list goes on and on. Like I said, He is a great guy with a big heart but I want Hartford out of my pocketbook.
