Logan picks up endorsements


State Sen. George Logan, R-17th District, was recently endorsed by Connecticut Realtors and the National Federation of Independent Business in his bid for re-election.

Connecticut Realtors represents 17,000 members involved in all aspects of real estate in Connecticut.

“Connecticut realtors are tired of declining property values and a state economy that has failed to bounce back from the great recession,” said Logan in a press release. “Connecticut homeowners and realtors are having a harder and harder time selling homes due to the policies of Gov. Malloy and his party leadership. Our state has become one of the last places to which people want to move or retire, but as a state we can change this by creating a pro-taxpayer, pro-economic growth environment.”

The National Federation of Independent Business is an association that advocates for small and independent business owners.

“It is important lawmakers create an environment that allows its businesses and individuals to successfully compete with the products and services they provide. … We need to throttle back burdensome taxes and fees to let our job creators grow and create good-paying jobs,” said Logan in a press release.

The 17th District represents all or parts of Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethany, Derby, Hamden, Naugatuck and Woodbridge.
