To the Editor:

My wife and I moved our family to Fairfield from Washington, DC almost four years ago because we thought it was such a wonderful place to raise our children. We were very excited to become members of the community and ensure that we were able to send our twin 4-year-old girls to the top public schools so that they have the best opportunities to succeed.

As a combat veteran, small business owner, and volunteer firefighter of many years, I have been active in the communities in which I’ve lived. I want to ensure that my children grow up with a similar sense of community in a safe, nurturing environment where they can excel and succeed. I know I’m not unique in that regard, and it’s why I believe it’s so important that our representatives in Hartford are committed to maintaining the kind of community that we have all come to know and love.

Over the past few years, our family has had a chance to get to know our State Senator, Tony Hwang. We first met Tony at an event on the town green and see him regularly at community events. Tony has made an effort to ensure the we were welcomed as part of his effort to spread a message of kindness and inclusion. The genuine connection he has with people is refreshing because he cares.

I’ve also come to recognize that Tony has dedicated his time in Hartford to those who need his support most. It is evidenced by his voting record and commitment to the community. He has worked tirelessly to advocate for teachers, firemen, police officers, veterans, seniors, and the middle class — the bedrock of our community.

That’s why I am proud to be voting for State Senator Tony Hwang on November 6.
