Living in Westport all of my life, I have met many politicians with rhetoric and promises to improve my life. Every once in a while a true, proven and dedicated candidate comes knocking on my door. Stephen Rubin is one of these candidates that I am convinced he will serve our families, town and state with caring, honesty and dedication.

I've know Steve for over 15 years and I am aware of many organizations he has served with, such as the Westport Police Athletic League, Al's Angels, and the Westport Y's Men, to name a few.

Steve has been elected to our RTM since 1993, being re-elected every two years since. He has supported the full range of Westport citizens by backing our senior center, schools, open space and the general quality of life that we have become accustomed to in Westport. Many of us know Steve from the Parks and Recreation office at Longshore where he has been servicing us for 17 years.

We are now experiencing hard times and our representatives in Hartford must speak up for us. I believe Steve is the person who can do just that. I will vote for Stephen Rubin on Nov. 6 and would encourage you to support him as well.
