Editor, The Cheshire Herald:
I have never engaged in personal attack campaigning, and I never will. It is a pathetic attempt to deflect voters from the issues that really matter to all of us.
Unfortunately, my opponent has decided to waste taxpayer money to spread lies and innuendo about my family and myself. By doing this he is purposely ignoring the economic burdens we all face and failing to offer any solutions to improve our lives.
I stand grounded in my principles and my integrity and will continue to fight for your well-being.
I am proud of my family and what we stand for. We work hard and, like you, try to survive in Connecticut’s economy. It is my hope that my opponent will spend his remaining campaign dollars as they were intended — to discuss the significant issues facing our communities, not for personal attacks and outrageous lies. Given his lack of any good ideas that will benefit us in our District, I fear that the latter will be true.
