I immigrated to the United States 18 years ago and since then have witnessed many different political leaders guide my community in Fairfield. Recently, I met state Rep. Kim Fawcett and was very impressed by her warmth and her willingness to go above and beyond in helping my family.

Rep. Fawcett took the time to meet with me personally at the local Whole Foods, listen to my family's issue and be proactive in helping us resolve it. She went above and beyond my expectations by reaching out to other governmental agencies on our behalf and working through many obstacles to finally help us reach the desired goal.

Rep. Fawcett has proven that she really cares about the needs of her constituents and does not back down when she is met with obstacles. I am grateful to her for her assistance and would feel honored to continue being represented by Kim Fawcett.
