This election is a crucial one for all of us, for reasons that we know only too well. The state budget, economic development, oppressive mandates, and education funding affects each of us and our towns. With so many daunting issues to address, we can’t settle for anyone who doesn’t have the experience, knowledge, and skills to work across party lines to get the job done right.

Given those criteria, the choice for the 33rd District state senator is an easy one. It is Norm Needleman (D). Norm’s qualifications and experience make him the right person for the job. He has nearly 40 years of experience at running a successful company and creating jobs. His first priority is not ambition or party politics. Rather, he is focused on enhancing the quality of life for everyone in our towns.

As first selectman of Essex, Norm has kept taxes among the lowest in the state, without cutting services. Norm believes that dialogue is the key to solving problems, and that no individual or political party has a monopoly on good ideas. He has long been actively involved in a number of civic and not-for-profit organizations. Most of all, he relies on his proven business skills and a deep knowledge of town government to find ways of solving problems that cut across party lines and special interests.

In these challenging times, we need Norm Needleman’s leadership and problem-solving skills in Hartford. I am voting for Norm because he will return meaningful State Senate representation to our district.
