There are lots of ways to figure out which political candidate deserves your vote.
You can look at the candidate’s track record of accomplishments. You can look at the length and relevance of their public service. You might even look at what they have accomplished in the business or professional world. On all those criteria, 33rd District State Senate candidate Norm Needleman (D) is clearly the right choice.
But I believe there is another vitally important criterion that shapes all of the above. That criterion is the depth of the candidate’s knowledge about how a town’s government, its civic organizations, and its cultural institutions actually work. On that score, Norm Needleman has an extraordinary depth of knowledge about the functions, regulations, and operations of town government. That knowledge alone qualifies him to represent our interests in the State Senate. More than that, he is also a leader in government, and is deeply involved in the heart of the community, supporting and participating in a wide range of civic, cultural, and charitable organizations.
So, my vote is going to Norm, not just based on the fact that he is a good guy, but based on the fact that he knows us. He knows how the governments in the towns we live in actually function. He knows the problems and issues we face. And he knows what we need. All of that knowledge makes Norm, far and away, my choice to represent us in the State Senate.
