COVID-19 Response

The pandemic is unprecedented, and it will take all of us doing our part to get through it. By working with public health professionals and first responders, Lezlye will keep Connecticut safe and work to create a response plan that prepares our state for the future.


Once Connecticut moves forward from the Coronavirus lockdown, it will be important to create an environment that is business friendly. Lezlye will support a pro-business agenda and will work to get business back and running.


Lezlye supports the best possible education for children of all backgrounds. In addition to increasing school and teacher funding, she will protect local oversight of schools and support parents’ freedom to choose the options that best serve their families.


Lezlye is committed to keeping our community safe. She will continue to support our law enforcement while also holding the critical conversations we need to improve relations between law enforcement and the community.


Healthcare in Connecticut has become unaffordable. Lezlye will support competitive, market-based healthcare reform to lower drug and treatment prices while protecting coverage for our most vulnerable and providing public health funding.
