Letter of support to reelect State Rep Linda Orange

October 26, 2012 Letters to Editor, Local News No Comments

Linda Orange was elected to the Legislature in November 1996 to represent the 48th Assembly District, which serves Colchester and East Haddam, CT. With the boundaries redrawn every 10 years, it will now include most of Colchester and parts of Lebanon, Mansfield and Windham, CT.

Dear Editor,

Linda Orange has been an integral part of our community. As a resident of East Haddam and President of the Bashan Lake Association, I can attest to the fact that she has devoted countless hours supporting our endeavors.

She was instrumental in arranging meetings, between the town of East Haddam and DEEP, to discuss the concerns with water draw-down in the winter months and issues with damage to lake front properties.

Thanks to Representative Orange, our voices were heard and the DEEP has a greater understanding of draw-downs and why they are needed.

I am also an active member of the Auto Body Association of Connecticut and Linda Orange has been working for all of the consumers of Connecticut by actively supporting an important bill that the Association put before the legislature.

Thanks to the efforts of Linda Orange, we now have a law that states you have the right to repair your car at any auto body shop of your choice, despite what your insurance company might tell you.

For all of her professionalism, timely returned phone calls, driven support for East Haddam residents, and efforts in protecting the consumers of Connecticut through the Auto Body Association, I proudly support Linda Orange in her bid for re-election.

Respectfully Submitted,

William Denya

There are circumstances under which the university should notify a student that another student who may have been suspended or expelled from campus will be returning, if they are returning. It is my understanding that this notification did not take place in a case that occurred three years ago and it should have. This process was corrected. – UConn President Susan Herbst
