“I am excited to put in my paperwork to run for State Representative,” said Laura Bush. “I moved to Connecticut eighteen years ago with my husband and we chose make Vernon our home and raise our children here. We have given a lot to our community and I have been sad to see how bad decisions made in Hartford have hurt towns like Vernon. We need strong representation, Mike Winkler has not put our community first and has voted lockstep with his party in Hartford to advance Governor Malloy’s tax and spend policies.”
