To the editor:
I have had the opportunity to work with Kim Fawcett on the Select Committee on Children. I am the House Chair and she is the Vice Chair. Kim has worked diligently on the Committee to protect our children and families while also embracing Results Based Accountability to ensure that programs are actually working and we are not wasting taxpayer’s hard earned dollars
She was an integral part of the working committee that produced the Children’s Report Card (www.ctkidsreportcard.org) We were both proud that Connecticut is the only legislature in the country that has produced a report card tracking the effectiveness of programs for kids
Kim is committed to accountability and transparency in our budget process and proves it with her insightful questions and work on the committee. She never “rubber stamps” issues, rather she educates herself on all proposed legislation and demands that decisions be data driven.
Kim always strives to bring common sense solutions to the table. She works hard and expects the people around her to work hard too. It has been a pleasure to have her as the Vice Chair and I hope that voters will also have the common sense to return her to office
