Paul Formica Wins CBIA Business Support
HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT –
Paul Formica, the Republican candidate for the 20th State Senate seat, has won the endorsement of the state’s largest business organization.
The Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA) this week endorsed Formica, the owner of Flanders Fish Market, for the last 31 years. Formica is the First Selectman of East Lyme who has been active in local business and government leadership initiatives.
“We need to elect more candidates like Paul Formica, who understands the importance of economic development and has a commonsense approach to dealing with issues of importance,” said Joe Brennan, CBIA executive vice president.
Formica, who lives in Niantic, believes tax reform, real discipline in state budgeting and more private sector solutions are needed to grow Connecticut’s economy.
CBIA is Connecticut’s largest business organization, with 10,000 member companies. For more information, please contact Meaghan MacDonald (860.244.1957; firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit the CBIA Newsroom.
