I urge all Fairfield voters to vote for Sue Brand on Nov. 6. She is the best candidate for the 132nd State Representative seat. Sue Brand has a broad and exceptional background and she is extremely well qualified to represent us in Hartford. Sue Brand currently serves Fairfield with distinction on our Board of Education and has served Fairfield on numerous town bodies.

Sue and her husband have raised their four children in Fairfield. Sue Brand has also had a career as a coronary intensive care nurse. It may be that at no time in history has an understanding of education and healthcare been more fundamental to attracting jobs for today and the future to Connecticut.

I know Sue Brand is very focused on what works in attracting investors and employers to Connecticut today, thoughtfully embracing the new realities of the 21st-century knowledge based economy. It is this kind of forward-based thinking that will benefit us today as well as our children and grandchildren.

Please vote for Sue Brand on Election Day.
