Republican official earns 30th District nomination 

Republican official earns 30th District nomination 

The Berlin Republican Town Committee is proud to announce its endorsement of Berlin Town Councilor Donna Veach for Republican candidate for the House of Representatives, 30th District.

Veach became the GOP-endorsed candidate at the GOP convention on Tuesday, May 19.

Veach, her husband Jeff and their three daughters have lived in Berlin for the past 30 years. She is a Eucharistic Minister at St. Paul’s church and is currently the Development and Marketing Director at the New Britain Youth Museum and Hungerford Nature Center.

Veach comes from a conservative family and believes in those ideas. She has strong family values, and has raised three strong, confident daughters. She understands the need and benefits of a good education. In addition, she sees the opportunity to bring manufacturing back to the state, and looks forward to working with the private sector once in Hartford to create apprenticeships and training programs for our students.

Also, Veach wants to look for the wasteful spending that exists in the state so that we can help our citizens, especially during these difficult times, by not increasing taxes while still providing essential services.

Veach has experience in managing budgets, and understands that you can’t tax your way out of a shortfall. She listens to ideas and suggestions from both sides of the aisle. Party affiliation is not as important as implementing great ideas.

Veach is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, equal rights for all citizens under the law, and opposes tolls in Connecticut. She believes that tolls will just be another barrier in bringing businesses back to the state.  The BRTC believes Donna Veach has the right conviction, morals, ethics, business experience, empathy and understanding to best represent Berlin and Southington. She is a strong woman who is proud of where she lives and wants her daughters to have the opportunity to raise their families here too.

The only way that can happen is if we work towards making Connecticut attractive to businesses and families.
