Join me in voting for Jonathan Steinberg for State Representative. As Westport's representative in the 136th District, Jonathan is a hard-working, thoughtful and open-minded legislator. When we served together on the RTM, I was impressed with Jonathan's willingness to embrace a leadership role on issues requiring in-depth analysis and well-articulated argument. He would reserve judgment until all the information was presented and debated. In Hartford, Jonathan does his research and works to build consensus on an issue-by-issue basis. He is no ideologue.

In the nine years I have known Jonathan he has distinguished himself as a man of honor and integrity. He speaks carefully because he will follow through with what he says. I am so pleased to count him among my friends.

Hartford needs Jonathan's legislative experience and cool head in the state legislature. Westport needs to re-elect Jonathan Steinberg as our state representative.
