State Rep. Cara Pavalock-D’Amato apologizes after dispute outside Bristol GOP fundraiser leads to social media ruckus

BRISTOL — A parking dispute during a Republican fundraiser in Bristol Saturday evening has led local Democratic leaders to condemn state Rep. Cara Pavalock-D’Amato for leaving a vulgar and insulting note in a neighbor’s mailbox.

Pavalock-D’Amato, a three-term Republican legislator representing the 77th District, on Tuesday afternoon issued a brief apology, but didn’t specifically address the language in the note.

“Dear foreclosed loser, listen close (expletive). The next time you come at me, you better know who the (expletive) you are dealing with,” the note reads.

The dispute started Saturday evening when Pavalock-D’Amato took her 2-year-old son to a large GOP fundraiser at the Winston Road home of Jake Carrier, president of Carrier Construction.
