To the Editor:

Being a parent of a special needs child, I feel it is important to have someone with knowledge and experience representing my child's best interests in Hartford.

I have known Attorney Cecilia Buck-Taylor for the past five years and I have seen firsthand her level of commitment and passion toward helping those in our community with special needs.

She has donated financially to programs that assist those who cannot help themselves, and has also advocated in court for those who cannot defend themselves.

Attorney Buck-Taylor has fought to improve the lives of our neighbors with special disabilities allowing them to live comfortably, responsibly and independently in our community.

Attorney Cecilia Buck-Taylor is a proven leader who will continue to improve the lives of those with special needs in our community as she represents them in Hartford.
