of Lavielle, Steinberg
One is a Republican and the other a Democrat; and more importantly, both are effective legislators.
As our current representatives, I find that Gail and Jonathan consider the interest of people before party. They walk the talk when it comes to being bipartisan.
When considering candidates, I look for leaders with the following attributes:
1) Intelligent and curious.
2) Engaged listener and open minded.
3) Diverse experiences and empathic.
4) Sense of humor and able to laugh at oneself.
I am happy to report that both Gail and Jonathan pass my test. I know Gail as a fellow member of Westport Sunrise Rotary and Jonathan as a dedicated Westporter. Also, they are both friends.
I am confident that Gail and Jonathan will continue to be effective legislators who will do what is right for the people in our community and throughout the state.
