Letter: Reader backs Pat Libero for state senate

To the Editor:

Pat Libero has my vote for state senator.

I've known Pat since I was a first grade student at Pagels elementary. Throughout my entire time in the West Haven school system, I'll always remember her positive words of encouragement and support any time we encountered each other. Even when I thought I wasn't capable of doing something, Pat reassured me that I was.

Whether she knows it or not, Pat was very influential in propelling me to continue my studies; achieving a bachelor’s degree, and most recently a master’s in school counseling. Pat has proven to display a passion for helping individuals excel and be successful, and I'm confident that she will demonstrate that same passion for the people of Connecticut as state senator.
