To the Editor:

Having known Terrie for 25 years, I have always been impressed with how committed, involved and effective she has been in working on important issues for us all — But seeing Terrie in action in Hartford raised my support to a whole new level.

Let me explain. Several years ago I had the unique experience of following Terrie as she went through her day in Hartford. She was on top of all the issues, listened well and provided thoughtful and realistic solutions. The discussions bounced from human services to community colleges to debt levels to local control. Her participation with committee members, outside groups and constituents required focused listening and instant recall of issues and concerns.

Terrie asked great questions and was informed, thoughtful and proactive. Topic by topic she was on target.

Let’s send Terrie Wood back to Hartford to continue her excellent record on our behalf.
