TO THE EDITOR:
Editor’s Note: The following is the text of a letter sent to the chairs of Weston’s Democratic and Republican Town Committees regarding recent remarks by Connecticut State Representative Anne Dauphinais (Killingly, Plainfield).
There comes a point where both political parties have to join together and speak as a single voice. In my estimation that point has occurred having read the comments of Anne Dauphinais, a member of the Connecticut House of Representatives.
Ms. Dauphinais’ opposition to the vaccination requirement for Connecticut state workers led her to compare the Governor to Adolph Hitler. She referenced the Governor as “King Lamont aka Hitler.” In a rambling Facebook posting, Ms. Dauphinais mentioned Nazi concentration camps, book burnings and other actions under Hitler while interspersed with the Governor’s mandates during the pandemic.
Members of the Connecticut House leadership from both parties have condemned her remarks. Weston is an inclusive community which prides itself on collegial interaction. I would hope, as the leaders of the Democratic and Republican Town Committees, you will come together to condemn the actions of Ms. Dauphinais and encourage our state legislators to follow our leadership.
