A principal foundation of the Republican Party has always been to limit the size of government and place emphasis at the local level. People have the greatest voice in a municipality than any other level of government. Sometimes we get caught up in the struggles of the national level that we forget that a lot of problems can be solved right in our town hall.
If we are truly looking for meaningful change, we must be willing to invest time in our community. The East Granby Republican Town Committee is a perfect way to further your interest at the local level. You will better understand East Granby and hear directly from your elected officials.
I also encourage you to exercise your right to vote this Election Day, November 4th. The Republican Party has a fine slate of candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Comptroller, as well as our incumbents for State Senator in the 7th District and State Representative in the 61st District. Please support these candidates so that we can count on a better future for Connecticut.

The Republican Party's Common-Sense Commitment to Connecticut
House Republican Leader Larry Cafero has outlined the Republican Party's Common-Sense Commitment to Connecticut. Here are the five basic principles:
1. Spend No More Than You Make
2. Borrow Only What You Can Afford to Pay Back
3. If It's Not Broken, Don't Fix It. But If It's Not Working, Get Rid of It
4. The More Government Tries to Do, The Less It Does Well
5. We Should All Have The Government We Need, But Only The Government We Need.
Mr. Cafero also included proposed government policies which support these principles - a printable copy of his complete presentation is accessible here.
