Brenda Kupchick has dedicated so much of her time to Fairfield. As a former neighbor, I came to know Brenda and her husband and son very well. Brenda and her husband Peter started their own small business in Fairfield 25 years ago, and they worked long hours to make it a success.

Brenda was always at the school helping out wherever she was needed. When members of the school community and neighborhood were facing a controversial issue, Brenda rose to the challenge and formed an advocacy group called One Voice. She hadn't ever done anything like this before. Brenda was successful in bringing people together from all over town to work together toward common goals.

It was amazing to watch this young mother, wife and small-family-business owner turn into a passionate advocate that produced real results for not just her neighbors but for many people across Fairfield who felt unheard.

Brenda didn't go away after those issues were resolved. She continued to stay involved giving her time and passion to issues that were important to people in our community. Brenda doesn't just talk about what needs to be done, she has a history of actually getting things done. I'm a lifelong Democrat, and I rarely vote for Republicans, but I have tremendous respect for Brenda and admire how hard she's worked during her first term representing the 132nd District fighting for issues that matter to Fairfield.

State Rep.Brenda Kupchick has earned my vote.
