Greazzo for Senate: He’ll work hard for taxpayers
Manchester Alderman and state Rep. Phil Greazzo can be considered a blue collar representative for the taxpayers and citizens. He works hard on their behalf, even to the point of getting his hands dirty. He would do the same in the state Senate, where the voters of District 20 should send him next month.
Greazzo is no one-trick pony. He likes to inform himself about a wide variety of issues and, despite his relative youth (age 42), lead on many of them. We sometimes disagree with him on an issue, but he usually makes the right call because his goal is to make citizens freer.
His opponent, District 20 incumbent Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, boasts of having held public office for 40 years. That is almost as long as Greazzo has been alive. D’Allesandro is running for his eighth Senate term. Though Lou sometimes makes the right call, more often than not he has sided with government over the taxpayers.
Greazzo made an impression early on when, despite being a newcomer to city politics, he took the lead in establishing a dog park in Manchester a few years ago. Thanks in large part to his vision and energy, the city finally has a dog park — and at no cost to the taxpayers. That is just one example of the kind of hard work and leadership Greazzo would bring to the Senate, where both qualities are needed. He also has been a strong advocate for more openness and transparency in state government as well as for solidifying private property rights.
The voters of District 20 would get a hard-working advocate in Phil Greazzo. They should elect him on Nov. 6.
