When writing about ethical and responsible government,
The New Haven Register suggested we need,
“an army of Mae Flexers.”
Protecting Victims of Violence and Keeping Families Safe
Mae has been a leading advocate, standing up against family violence and sexual assault by passing tougher penalties and improving services for victims. And she has been endorsed by state police for fighting Governor Malloy to restore local 9-1-1 emergency response centers to our community.
Protecting Our Community Hospitals
Mae knows the importance of our community hospitals like Windham and Day Kimball Hospitals. They play a key role in providing the health care our communities need and help sustain and grow our local economy. That’s why Mae has stood up to Governor Malloy and Hartford Healthcare and fought proposed cuts that would have hurt our community hospitals.
Promoting Innovation and Small Businesses
Mae has fought to pass new initiatives promoting innovation and entrepreneurship, which helps attract new businesses and jobs to Northeastern Connecticut. She also supports lowering property taxes and providing low interest loans for small businesses, helping local economies grow and create new jobs.
