Statement of Secretary of the State Stephanie Thomas on the Passing of Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn

(Hartford, CT) – Secretary of the State Stephanie Thomas issued the following statement on the passing of Karen Hobert Flynn, the President of Common Cause.

“Karen Hobert Flynn was a champion of numerous election reforms that benefit the residents of Connecticut every day. When chair of Common Cause Connecticut, she helped to pass the Citizens Election Program, one of the strongest campaign finance laws in the country. The program has had a great impact on political campaigning in our state, allowing candidates like me to run for office through small-dollar donations. I will continue to carry Karen’s legacy of strengthening our democracy and protecting voters’ rights through my work as Secretary of the State and extend my condolences to her family.”
