I had the pleasure of succeeding Stephen Rubin as an RTM member from District 3 back in 2001 and worked with him while we were both on the RTM. Throughout the last 10 years I have been impressed with his dedication to his constituents in District 7 and Westporters in general, as both a member of the RTM and in his numerous community and charitable activities.

We need to change Hartford to stop Connecticut's continuing downward spiral. This is our chance to start to rectify that situation. Please join me in voting for Stephen Rubin for District 136 State Representative on Nov. 6.
