CT REALTORS Endorse Toni Boucher

September 26, 2022

Real estate coalition says Boucher is best choice to “ensure there is a positive environment for living in or transferring property in CT.”

26th State Senate District candidate Toni Boucher has received the endorsement of the Connecticut REALTORS, which represents 20,000 members involved in all aspects of real estate in Connecticut. The district includes Wilton, Westport, Weston, Redding and parts of Ridgefield, New Canaan, Darien and Stamford. 

“We are pleased to relay our Association has voted to endorse your candidacy for Senate District 26,” wrote Connecticut REALTORS 2022 President Tammy Felenstein. “The Association carefully evaluates candidates in determining who may best ensure there is a positive environment for living in or transferring property in Connecticut. Thank you for your commitment to serve, and we wish you all the best in the election.”

“To have the enthusiastic backing of our state’s real estate professionals is truly humbling,” Boucher said.  “Connecticut Realtors want a more affordable Connecticut – a Connecticut they can ‘sell’ – and so do I.  

“I support removing estate and gift taxes in Connecticut. I oppose any increases to our property tax burdens, including a statewide property tax and any expanded or new conveyance taxes. I also oppose any type of so-called ‘Mansion Tax’.  I am asking Democrats, Independents, Republicans and unaffiliated voters for their support, and if elected, I pledge to work across the aisle to bring about the positive environment that our real estate industry envisions.”

Boucher served as 26th District State Senator from 2008 to 2019 and as a State Representative from 1997 to 2008.  

Her top issues include:

  1. protecting local control regarding residential property rights. 
  2. making Connecticut more affordable through tax relief
  3. protect and promoting local control of education and parental involvement in our schools
  4. making Connecticut’s communities safer

Boucher is a pro-choice, socially moderate fiscal conservative. She has been endorsed by the Connecticut Independent Party and the Connecticut Fraternal Order of Police.

Boucher has endorsed a $1.2 billion tax relief plan that would have provided immediate, significant, and long-term tax relief to Connecticut’s working- and middle-class families. These detailed tax relief proposals can be viewed at AffordableConnecticut.com.

Boucher encouraged voters of all parties as well as unaffiliated voters to visit www.ToniBoucher.com today for more information about her campaign and to learn about volunteer opportunities. Election Day is Nov. 8.
