The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

Do I vote in the November mid-term elections or do I not vote? The right to vote is granted by the Constitution. The choice to vote is mine to make. Do I understand where the candidates vying for my vote stand on issues that are near and dear to me? Can I rely on the rhetoric heard in the campaign ads?
It’s time for me to take matters into my own hands and be proactive. This election, I want to hear directly from the candidates themselves, so I’m going to contact each one of them who represents me on the federal and local levels. I want to know their plan of action, not just their words, to keep the promise of affordable healthcare for seniors, hold the pharmaceutical industry accountable to negotiate fair prescription pricing, retain much-needed social services, and protect the interests of residential consumers as the utility market continues to change. In other words, I want to go to the polls as an informed voter.
The mid-term elections are all about We the People; there is no electoral college. When I fill in the circles on the ballot next to the candidates I believe will best serve my interests and the interests of my fellow Connecticut seniors, my voice will be heard. Every vote counts! I encourage everyone to exercise their right to vote. Be the difference. Vote.
