Be Part of the Change We Need to See in Connecticut

Good afternoon friends, neighbors and family,

First, let me say thank you. These past 2 legislative sessions have been some of the toughest in Connecticut’s history. Your words of encouragement, insight, ideas and yes even your frustrations, made me stronger for both you and our state, every single day. Like you, I believe our state is worth fighting for and I hope to be the person in Hartford that continues to do so for us all. Hand in hand, we can make the changes our state needs. But we must be “in it to win it”.

With that in mind, I am asking for your support in raising the funds needed to assist in making that a reality this Nov. 8th, 2016, as we kick off this re-election campaign.

In order to qualify for state campaign funds, I must obtain donations from Fairfield, Southport, Westport, Weston, Easton and Newtown/Sandy Hook residents/constituents of $100 or less.  Each individual donation counts toward my goal of 500 total contributions and $15,000.

If I reach that goal I will qualify for state campaign funds; a uniquely CT campaign finance reform program that focuses on grass-root fundraising instead of special interest/corporate money/influence.  Your personal contributions matter to me. Your contributions say you believe in me and the work I do on your behalf.  You believe in a better vision for Connecticut.  I invite you to be part of the change we need to see in Connecticut. We can do much better, we have to do better and we all deserve better.

Each individual can go online or fill out the attached form via  I also invite you to share this with your friends and neighbors and because so much of what we do affects the future of our youth, kids over the age of 12 can now also show support with a donation. My suggestion is $5.

Many thanks again for your help, friendship along with your DONATION and support!

Help Toni Boucher with your Support

Dear Friends of State Senate District 26,

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”

Thank you for the gift of public service that you have provided me these last two years. Yes, it has been a difficult road to travel and the fiscal problems of the state are devastating and seem to get worse each year, but I believe we can still turn things around. People have finally had enough and are offering to help me fight back. This will be a historic year, not just nationally but in the CT Senate. National polls show CT will be a toss-up state and that Republicans have a serious chance to win the majority. We are only 4 seats away from gaining control of the senate and changing the direction of the state!  Accomplishing this goal required that we keep the seats we have to do this.

I am grateful to receive the unanimous vote and support at the State Senate 25 Convention this month.  I have filed with the Secretary of the State to be your candidate on November 8.   Now is the time donate and for me to quality for funds to run a strong race.
