Went Above and Beyond

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I endorse my dear friend and our incumbent state representative Robin Comey for re-election.

Over the past four years, she has done an exceptional job of representing and becoming a prominent voice of Branford residents in Hartford. Her commitment to Branford, public service, and accomplishments as state representative are well-known to my community. She has a great sense of fairness and is compassionate about issues that face every Branford resident regardless of their background and beliefs.

For example, during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic when vaccine distribution had just started but vaccines were not accessible to all, she made a special effort to secure vaccines just for our Branford Nepali community members. Further, she spearheaded an effort to urge U.S. senators and other partners to provide much needed aid including vaccines and PPE to Nepal to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. Third, she has been leading an effort to request Connecticut DMV to offer a driving license test in Nepali language. This is important for my community who are less fluent in the English language. These are a few examples of how she went above and beyond to help marginalized communities like ours.

Let’s help re-elect state representative Robin Comey in November.
