06/24/10 Larry DeNardis Endorses Tom Foley for Governor

Larry DeNardis and Tom Foley held a press conference today at the Hamden Town Center to announce Larry’s endorsement of Tom for Governor of Connecticut.

“I endorse Tom Foley for the Republican nomination for Governor,” said Larry DeNardis. “Tom’s impressive business experience, and what he has learned as a candidate through extensive meetings with people throughout Connecticut, as well as his personal qualities and integrity, provide him with the knowledge and the basis for good judgment to be an effective Governor for our state.

I support his candidacy because Tom believes that state government must be competent and must have good leadership. It should do well the things that it undertakes to do. He also believes that state government should be economical; that citizens have a right to expect that unnecessary expenditures will be eliminated or avoided.

We both believe that better organization – for responsibility, competence and economy – is essential to a better government. In short, state government to be successful, must be managed, and manageable."

Tom Foley gave the following remarks after receiving Mr. DeNardis’ support:
“Larry has had a distinguished career in government and academia. I have developed tremendous respect for Larry from our time on the campaign trail and we have become friends. I am honored to have his support and help in this campaign.

During his own campaign for governor he talked about Connecticut being headed in the wrong direction and stressed the need to return to basics, focus on good policy, better government, and strong leadership to get our state headed back in the right direction. He agrees with me that our first order of business is creating jobs and solving our budget crisis without increasing taxes. These are the same themes I will be carrying to the voters of Connecticut in the months ahead.

I intend to call on Larry often for advice in the coming months. He has offered to provide
advice and counsel on budget and policy issues to my campaign and to my administration if I am elected. I look forward to putting his unique wisdom to work on behalf of the people of Connecticut.”

Tom Foley for Governor’s full list of public endorsements to date can be found here.
