Proven Leadership

I urge each and every voter of North Haven to support State Representative Dave Yaccarino (R-87)’s reelection to the Legislature. He is a capable, dedicated public servant as well as a respected local small business owner.

His understanding of the issues and his deep concern for the needs of his constituents and the town of North Haven is evident in the many civic activities and causes in which he engages. His monthly Coffee with your Legislators events held at the local McDonald’s restaurant is just one example of how he strives to be completely accessible to those he serves.

This year it is particularly important to return Dave to the State House. We need his proven leadership in Hartford to address the COVID-19 pandemic’s severe disruption to the economy, commerce, and everyday life.

Dave’s ascent to the position of House Republican whip demonstrates the high esteem and confidence his Capitol colleagues hold for him. That support will be especially important in the upcoming legislative session when the fiscal fallout from the coronavirus will be debated, and policy formed that will affect all of us.

I encourage your readers to join me in supporting Dave Yaccarino with their votes on Nov. 3.
