Bipartisan endorsement

of Lavielle, Steinberg

This is to support the re-elections of Gail Lavielle and Jonathan Steinberg to the Connecticut House of Representatives.

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.
