Former Green Party Candidate Endorses Dunsby by Gabriel B. Rossi

Let’s face it, it’s a tough year for down-ballot candidates. With historic levels of distaste for our presidential nominees and a sincere lack of split-ticket voters, state politicians are left scratching their heads. An increasing unwillingness to differentiate local campaigns from national discourse is an understated causality of a political system in crisis and a terrible precedent for American democracy.

Six years ago, I ran for state representative in the 135 th district on the Green party ticket, so it may come as a surprise to learn that I am not endorsing the Green party candidate for that office today. And I’ll admit that I am tempted to punish republican nominees for their party’s front-runner, but when I reflect on Dr. Dunsby’s excellent performance as Easton’s first selectman, his incredible family, and all I know of him as a community leader and neighbor, I am confident in my decision to split the ticket this November and vote Dunsby for Connecticut Legislature.

Here are three reasons why other liberals should consider the same—even if you have to close one eye to cast your vote: First off, Dunsby is an environmentalist. He was the first person I know to drive an electric car; he is a strong supporter of alternative energy; and he is endorsed by the CT League of Conservation Voters in this election.

Secondly, Dunsby has skin in the game. All of his kids have attended public schools and he is a supporter of public education, serving (formerly) as chair of Easton’s Board of Education and on the representative council of our regional, educational service agency.

Lastly, Dunsby is prepared to serve. His background as a local politician and successful businessperson gives him the right balance of temperament and know-how to address the big challenges facing our state and communities.

So, as you stumble into the voting booth this November, red in the face at the top of the ticket, consider giving Dunsby a chance before blindly swiping across the party line; in my opinion, he has earned it.

Adam Dunsby debates Bonnie Troy for State House of Representative seat

Our Candidate for State Representative, Adam Dunsby offered serious, positive solutions for the economic challenges facing Connecticut. His opponent Green Party candidate confessed she didn’t know much about how the state’s finances work, and stated multiple times that the best way to grow Connecticut’s economy was to grow marijuana and make it legal in our state.

“For anyone that saw the debate on Saturday for the 135th State Representative seat, it is clear that there is only one serious candidate for the job! Adam Dunsby proposed specific ideas on taxes, spending cuts, and regulatory reform to keep Connecticut business from leaving the state. His opponent, Bonnie Troy admitted that “having not been in Hartford, I really don’t understand how the spending works.” Her only specific proposal throughout the debate was to push for the legalization of recreational use of marijuana. As the current First Selectman of Easton, Adam has the executive experience and the knowledge of the state budget process necessary to address the current problems facing Connecticut. Be sure to VOTE on Nov. 8th for ADAM DUNSBY!!!” – Bob Ferguson, Weston RTC Chairman

TONY HWANG FOR STATE SENATE – WESTON RTC DONATION & VOLUNTEER

Be Part of the Change We Need to See in Connecticut

Good afternoon friends, neighbors and family,

First, let me say thank you. These past 2 legislative sessions have been some of the toughest in Connecticut’s history. Your words of encouragement, insight, ideas and yes even your frustrations, made me stronger for both you and our state, every single day. Like you, I believe our state is worth fighting for and I hope to be the person in Hartford that continues to do so for us all. Hand in hand, we can make the changes our state needs. But we must be “in it to win it”.

With that in mind, I am asking for your support in raising the funds needed to assist in making that a reality this Nov. 8th, 2016, as we kick off this re-election campaign.

In order to qualify for state campaign funds, I must obtain donations from Fairfield, Southport, Westport, Weston, Easton and Newtown/Sandy Hook residents/constituents of $100 or less.  Each individual donation counts toward my goal of 500 total contributions and $15,000.

If I reach that goal I will qualify for state campaign funds; a uniquely CT campaign finance reform program that focuses on grass-root fundraising instead of special interest/corporate money/influence.  Your personal contributions matter to me. Your contributions say you believe in me and the work I do on your behalf.  You believe in a better vision for Connecticut.  I invite you to be part of the change we need to see in Connecticut. We can do much better, we have to do better and we all deserve better.

Each individual can go online or fill out the attached form via www.Hwang4Senate.com/Donate.  I also invite you to share this with your friends and neighbors and because so much of what we do affects the future of our youth, kids over the age of 12 can now also show support with a donation. My suggestion is $5.

Many thanks again for your help, friendship along with your DONATION and support!

Dear Friends of State Senate District 26,

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”

Thank you for the gift of public service that you have provided me these last two years. Yes, it has been a difficult road to travel and the fiscal problems of the state are devastating and seem to get worse each year, but I believe we can still turn things around. People have finally had enough and are offering to help me fight back. This will be a historic year, not just nationally but in the CT Senate. National polls show CT will be a toss-up state and that Republicans have a serious chance to win the majority. We are only 4 seats away from gaining control of the senate and changing the direction of the state!  Accomplishing this goal required that we keep the seats we have to do this.

I am grateful to receive the unanimous vote and support at the State Senate 25 Convention this month.  I have filed with the Secretary of the State to be your candidate on November 8.   Now is the time donate and for me to quality for funds to run a strong race.
