Be heard: Connecticut needs comprehensive election reforms

The COVID pandemic and the protests following the barbaric killing of George Floyd highlight the urgent need to elect leaders who demonstrate the core values of accountability and transparency and the ability and desire to work on common sense solutions to issues that are critical to Connecticut residents.  Such elections, unfortunately, will not occur consistently without a radical restructuring of our election processes and systems.

The governor should appoint a commission to enable voting by mail

One thing we value most is our freedom to elect the representatives and leaders who work together on our behalf, especially in times such as these. In Connecticut, we can be grateful for the leadership of Gov. Ned Lamont and others as they have tackled the unprecedented medical, economic, employment and fiscal challenges of the pandemic. Now we must all work together to protect our country’s most important and enduring asset: the engagement of “we the people” in determining who holds our elected offices.
