To the Editor:
I have known Steve and Toni Rubin for many years living in Westport. Having watched these two great people work within the community that we loved for so many years, I believe I’ve had a front row seat to much of the great work that they have both accomplished. There are many well-meaning folks that are interested in doing good work, yet find little time in their hectic schedules to actually gain traction on their desires.
The Steve Rubin that I’ve known over the past decade has always been a tireless leader and volunteer. His unwavering commitment to working on numerous programs and projects that are focused on helping others continues to inspire and motivate all of us that know and love him. The Steve Rubin I know has a difficult time saying “no” to a request for help, regardless of when and where it comes. He is constantly looking for ways to be of service and networking with his colleagues and friends to provide the assistance required for the right thing to be done.
The Steve Rubin that I know is a good man. In a world that has too many pundits and politicians, Steve is the real deal. He is one of us. He is frustrated with the lack of traction on fundamental change that needs to happen in Hartford and Washington. He wants to be part of a movement that will work each day to reverse the rhetoric and inaction that has dominated the scene for too long in our state. His values and principles are the bedrock of his character. He is a man we can all be proud to call our state representative.
There is no doubt that the Steve Rubin I know will “ruffle some feathers” in Hartford. Steve doesn’t tolerate fools and those who waste time and our tax money. He is definitely someone that isn’t shy about reminding others of the deep responsibility that they have to serve our needs. The Steve that I know is a fighter and God knows we need more fighters in Hartford to bring our fiscal house in order, create an environment where more jobs can be created and our taxes be made more rational.
Steve is a loving father and grandfather. He has a keen understanding of the challenges of both parents and children in our world. It is with this insight that he continues to wage his own war on our behalf to achieve our collective goals and objectives. Steve wants to create a world where what is right is what’s getting done. The Steve Rubin that I know will not rest until his vision, our vision for this world comes to reality.
Please join me on Election Day and vote for the Steve Rubin that I know for state representative. I can assure you that he will never let us down.
