Dear Friends,

I am Mary Ellen Klinck, a lifelong Democrat, former East Haddam Selectman and State Commissioner of the Department of Aging, who believes the rights of the elderly, disabled, veterans, teachers, citizens and children need a voice.

Residents of the 33rd Senate District know they live in a magical place. I own property on both sides of the Connecticut River and love the vistas and sunsets. A clean, protected river and shoreline are vital to our quality of life. Open space land along these waterfronts must be preserved, so that future generations will enjoy what we have today.

While owning a restaurant, an insurance agency, and a real estate office, I’ve created hundreds of jobs. Add my membership on the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce’s executive board, and I know the needs in today’s business community. I’ve helped elect local, state and Federal Democratic candidates. The Party’s ideals are in my blood.

I support investment in Connecticut’s tourism industry, which will increase economic development, jobs and revenue. Our river and coastline will benefit from tourism promotion.

Beyond our district, UConn is becoming a world-class medical research center. The investment in Jackson Laboratory is a real boost, making Farmington the bioscience center of the Northeast, where people can get the best medical care now and in the future.

I have a passion for community service. One must not only give back to the community but also inspire others through good example. My resumé shows a diversified background, both as a professional and a volunteer. I enjoy being involved.

I promise to work vigorously for everyone in the 33rd District and ask for your support.  We need a woman senator to replace Edith Prague and Eileen Daily, who are retiring.

Contact me at www.klinckforsenate.com or 860-873-8420.


Mary Ellen Klinck
