As a lifelong Democrat and Connecticut native, I am alarmed by what has been happening in our country since the 2016 election. It has inspired me to take action, by getting involved at the local level, including in Killingworth where I have lived for the past three years.
After the 2016 election, Republicans in Congress made it their first priority to unravel the critical health care reform legislation. Amidst that chaos, I was heartened to see that Connecticut stood firmly by its health care exchange—a model for the nation. For me, this highlighted the importance of electing strong, local representatives who care about our right to health care and will fight for it in Hartford. Jason Adler, who is running for state representative in the 35th Assembly District, is one of those people. Jason, whose family has been deeply affected by health issues, has put forward practical ideas for dealing with rising insurance costs. Health care is a right, not a privilege, and no family should go bankrupt trying to keep their kids healthy.
We also have the right to be safe from gun violence. I’m proud that Connecticut has led the nation in bringing about new policies that are saving lives. As an educator, Jason understands that guns have no place in our schools and that more common-sense gun laws are needed to prevent future tragedies like Sandy Hook. Jason was recognized for his support of gun violence prevention measures—including more resources for mental health treatment—by Everytown for Gun Safety.
For these reasons and others, I will be casting my vote for Jason Adler on Nov. 6.
