Letters

Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful

I am writing to express my support for Dave Yaccarino’s reelection to the Connecticut General Assembly. I have known Dave personally for more than 40 years. During our relationship, Dave would often reach out to me to discuss a particular issue and explain the reason for his vote.

My response to him was always the same, “Dave, I sent you to represent me in Hartford because I trust your judgment. I know that you will weigh the facts and make your decision based on what is right rather than what will make you popular.”

Who can ask for more than that?

Dave and I spent a lot of time working together as assistant scout leaders when our boys were in Troop 811. I can sum up my opinion of Dave Yaccarino by referring to the Boy Scout Law. A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. That fits Dave perfectly and he will have my vote on Nov. 3.
