Rubino Brings ‘Fresh Perspective,’ Right Kind of Experience

I am writing in strong support of Dave Rubino for State Representative for Connecticut’s 23rd District, which includes the towns of Old Lyme, Lyme, Old Saybrook, and Westbrook.  Dave will bring a unique background and a fresh perspective to the work he will do on our behalf in Hartford. He is an attorney and small business owner in Old Lyme with a lengthy career in promoting democracy in other nations. This is the kind of experience the constituents in the 23rd District need to navigate the challenges of a state suffering through a pandemic and the aftermath of these circumstances.

Like Dave, I also chose to live in Old Lyme and have been a resident of Old Lyme for 24 years.  My entire career has been dedicated to supporting and advocating for public education and public school teachers.  Dave is the clear choice for those who believe in maintaining strong policies to protect our education system and the teachers working our schools.  He will protect the collective bargaining rights of teachers.  He will ensure adequate funding for our schools.  He will protect teacher pensions. He will co-sponsor legislation to address student trauma and promote social-emotional policies and funding.

More globally, Dave will work to strengthen our economy.  He will work to attract small business owners by proposing that the state invest in a marketing campaign to improve the economic future in Connecticut. Similarly, he will work to improve policies and funding to promote travel and tourism, which is so critical to this region. 

Please join me in voting for Dave on November 3rd. The residents of the 23rd District deserve a legislator who is committed to these principles.
