VERNON - On Wednesday, May 20th, Vernon Councilwoman, Laura Bush was nominated by the Vernon Republican Town Committee to run for the 56th District seat in the Connecticut General Assembly.
As a mother, grandmother, wife and a teacher, Laura Bush is keenly aware of the challenges facing Vernon residents in these difficult times. She vowed to run a vigorous campaign which contrasts her record of accomplishment in Vernon with the incumbent’s history as a partisan rubber stamp for the Malloy and Lamont Administrations.
“Runaway spending, rampant taxation and onerous regulations have hampered businesses, taxpayers and workers for far too long in our great state. Our children go away to college never to return and ‘For Sale’ signs sprout across our neighbors’ front lawns. The old way isn’t working anymore. It is time for a change! It’s time to bring reason to the state capitol and give freedom back to our citizens. That is my pledge to you and the promise I will share with voters throughout this campaign” Bush stated in accepting the nomination.
She has been a Vernon resident for 20 years has been a member of the Vernon Town Council since 2015. She was previously a member of the Vernon Board of Education. She and her husband Tom reside in Vernon and are the parents of 3 boys and grandparents of a 1 year old grandson.
