To the Editor:
State Representative: That is what we elected Jonathan Steinberg to do for the town of Westport, and he truly brings representative skills to that job.
First, whenever possible, I have seen our state representative at so many community and organization events, listening to his constituents, teaching his constituents and gathering information to take to his work in Hartford. Then, he uses that information in his role on three state legislative committees: the Transportation Committee, the Energy and Technology Committee and the Committee on Aging.
It is the last of these, the Committee on Aging, that I am most familiar. I have seen how, even with his busy schedule, state Rep. Steinberg attends forums and programs to learn more about the numerous, complicated and important issues related to concerns of the states and Westports seniors.
Since I participate in a number of professional and community organizations concerned with aging issues, I not only observe this participation by our state representative, I hear other professionals in the field of aging speak of him with such admiration and appreciation for his efforts to help them and to work on legislation on issues related to concerns of Connecticuts older adults.
His political opponent has, in my estimation, none of these qualities or abilities. We must return Jonathan Steinberg to Hartford. As a Westport Republican for 47 years, I totally support this Westport Democrat for re-election to the state legislature as Westports state representative.
