“Aimee is the kind of person we want in politics — she’s an activist, you know her through her work organizing the March for Change, she’s been at the forefront of efforts in Ridgefield to stand up to Eversource, organizing people together to stand up for their rights. That’s the exact kind of person we want representing us in Hartford,” said Senator Murphy. “I’ve been fortunate to work with her on a lot of causes that we care about together over the years, and I’m asking for you to give her your support as she’s running for the General Assembly.”

“This is an election like none other, and it’s critical that we stand up and reject the hateful, divisive rhetoric of Trump and the Republican Party,” said Berger-Girvalo. “I’m proud to have the support of Senator Murphy and ready to keep working together for expanded healthcare access, more funding for our schools, sustainable, good-paying jobs, and a recovery from this pandemic that puts working families first. Together, I know we can build a stronger, fairer Connecticut for all of us.”
