We currently face one of the greatest challenges in the history of our Republic - to preserve the limited, non-intrusive government our Founders gave us. As the Chairman of the East Granby Republican Town Committee, I stand ready, willing and able to join with you in meeting that challenge.
I believe good governance starts at the local level. The East Granby Republican Party focuses on local issues and puts forth candidates who adhere to our conservative principles and are responsive to the best interests of our community we are proud of.
Those core values are individual liberty; responsibility and accountability; protecting property rights; encouraging free enterprise; public health and safety; providing a good education; leaner, more efficient government; and fiscal responsibility.
The strength of our party is a combined effort of volunteers, donors and putting forth our core values. Will you join us? It takes all of us, working together, to elect Republicans to State and local offices and to build a strong East Granby Republican Party.
I look forward to working with you!

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.
