Election

  • Qualifications Should Matter

    To the Editor:

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    There's something special about growing up in Newtown.  This town becomes a part of who you are.  Like me, Matt Cole was raised here.  He attended public schools here, ran cross country here, volunteered here, and goes to church here. In short, Matt Cole is Newtown through and through.  It's why I think he'd be a great state representative for us! 

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    I write in support of Governor Malloy for Governor, Elizabeth Esty for the US House of Representatives, Kim Fawcett for State Senate, and Matt Cole for state representative. The support and compassion Governor Malloy and Representative Esty provide Newtown and its families goes without saying. They demonstrate strong leadership in times of challenge.

  • Newtown’s Vote Will Be A Gun Vote

    To the Editor:

    The “vote” in Connecticut this Election Day, represents more than a choice between parties, policies, and/or personalities.  The focus most is guns, rifles and ammo. Those who stand tall living in a state with bipartisan gun control laws, are on one side of the issue. Those who stand tall in support of repeal of Connecticut's gun control laws, are on one side of the issue.  In a true sense, there is no other issue for Connecticut, and certainly not for Newtown, on November 4th.

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    I am writing this letter as a private citizen and not as a representative of any entity. 

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    We are supporting Tony Hwang for State Senate from the 28th District for his experience and strong efforts to help improve Connecticut’s Business climate.

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    I am writing to support Tony Hwang for State Senate.

    A couple years ago, my sister and I, along with our children, enjoyed a tour of our state’s capital building in Hartford. This trip had personal meaning as my father and our children’s grandfather, Judge Robert Testo, was Speaker of the House of Representatives for Connecticut from 1967 to 1969.

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    I’d like to take this time to endorse our current state representative for the 106th District, Mitch Bolinsky, for another term on Election Day.

    Mitch has a strong record of serving Newtown as a past member of the Board of Ethics, the Economic Development Commission and the Legislative Council.  In addition to his public service, he brings over 25 years of private sector experience in the areas of Marketing and Regulatory Affairs.

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    Connecticut has a problem and somebody has to stand up to it.

    Our state’s criminal justice system consumes well over a billion dollars a year of our tax money and, sadly, the results are not satisfactory largely due to a system of harsh punishment for non-violent offenders resulting in hyper incarceration. To wit: America has 5 percent of the world’s population and 25 percent of the world’s prisoners.

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    I first met Mitch Bolinsky when we served together on the Legislative Council.  I was immediately impressed with his integrity and commitment to serving his constituents.

    During Mitch’s early days as Newtown’s State Representative, those values were tested and he once again demonstrated his commitment to Newtown.  A commitment that he has strongly maintained during his tenure as our state representative.
