If you feel as I do, that this election is about creating jobs and getting our economy back on track, I hope you will join me in supporting Steve Obsitnik on Nov. 6. Steve is a successful businessman and job creator. He is a first-generation American. Steve's grandparents and father immigrated to the United States from Czechoslovakia in pursuit of the American dream. It was their belief that in America you can succeed through hard work and perseverance. They instilled these same values in Steve. Steve Obsitnik founded a small high tech company, and he is the only candidate in this race who has actually created jobs and knows what it means to make a payroll each month.

Steve wants to return responsibility and courageous leadership to Washington. He believes we can get out of this fiscal mess, but changes must be made. To help create more jobs, tax code reform is needed to enable small business to start-up and existing businesses to expand. Steve recognizes the dangers of out-of-control spending, and he is committed to reducing both governmental debt and the budget deficit. Steve's business experience is key to this area of fiscal reform.

Steve was raised in Stamford and attended Stamford High School. From there he went on to the Naval Academy where he earned an engineering degree. While in the Navy, Steve spent five years onboard nuclear submarines. Steve enjoys solving problems and likes to fix things, and I can't think of anything in greater need of fixing than our country.

Vote for Steve Obsitnik on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
