If you are not seriously concerned about our nation's 14.7 percent underemployment level, staggering national debt, and waning global competitiveness, then you need get yourself up to speed quickly and prepare yourself to make some very important decisions this November.

We do not lack well-intentioned representatives in Congress. What we are missing are bright, innovative problem solvers, entrepreneurs and courageous leaders like Steve Obsitnik.

Steve will draw upon his intelligence, proven leadership ability, and global business experience to drive systematic change within our bloated government. Our fiscal problems can be solved by getting Americans across the spectrum back to work. Steve understands that a key long-term solution to our global competitiveness is improving the education of our workforce.

I am proud to support Steve in his quest to serve us in Congress. Steve is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and Nuclear Power School, and served aboard a nuclear powered submarine. After graduating from the Wharton School of Business he founded a successful technology firm in Silicon Valley. He currently teaches a course on entrepreneurship at Sacred Heart University.

His background and a record show he is committed to getting results and he will be a great representative for us in Washington.

Please join me in voting for Steve Obsitnik to represent Connecticut's 4th Congressional District this November.
