Letter: Bergstein Is an Independent Thinker and Smart Problem Solver

Letter to the editor submitted by by Ann Sawyer

It’s time for a reality check on where Connecticut is headed and who’s been leading us there. It’s time for a change. I’m excited to support Alex Bergstein for State Senate District 36. Alex is an independent thinker and smart problem solver. She will bring specific, practical solutions to our economic and transportation issues, and effectively advance them in the state Senate.

I am proud to be from a state that has traditionally put forward qualified candidates regardless of affiliation. That means taking a close, careful look at voting records and qualifications. I encourage all to renew that effort, especially in these divisive times. Test your assumptions about how party positions align with your vision for our state.

Visit Alex Bergstein’s website, alex4statesenate.com, and look at her policy proposals and record of achievement. I hope you agree that, as a state senator, Alex will advance Connecticut’s economy without abandoning our common values or expectations of safe and healthy communities.
