To the Editor:
Citizens be aware that our congresswoman, Elizabeth Etsy, has taken contributions from the energy and environmental sources to the tune of $26,000. (May 9th issue of Fairfield County Weekly, page 4.) The Hartford Courant has noted (in the same article) that she gave back $3,500 to Northeast Utilities since it might have been an “unnecessary distraction.” Why you ask?
Guess who is married to the commissioner of the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection? Yep you guessed it – his name is Dan Esty.
Now please; I’m sure everything is on the up and up; but do you really think she is giving we citizens her major concern? Remember, the House of Representatives is the Peoples House – not the pipeline for big business to get into the federal government.
Congresswoman Esty, give back the money and prove you are there to represent us.
