A Letter to the Editor of The Newtown Bee from Patricia Lucas:
When I read the petty, irrelevant comments that people made about Senator Tony Hwang, I was thoroughly disgusted. Tony Hwang doesn’t need a slogan or catch phrase to precede his name. What he says he will do, he does to the best of his ability. Not only does the job get done, it gets done without any political mudslinging, and he is always willing to reach across the aisle. He walks the walk and talks the talk without any negativity; he wholeheartedly cares about the people he represents.
The week before Christmas 2016, we received the horrendous, life-altering news that my husband’s cancer had returned. One night, when we were sitting at home, our doorbell rang. I was shocked to see Tony Hwang standing on our porch, offering not just condolences, but his help. He sincerely asked what we needed and if there was anything that he could do to help, to please let him know. A year later, I was diagnosed with cancer, and Tony Hwang was one of the first to call and ask what he could do for us. Tony puts his money where his mouth is when he preaches about kindness and his passionate support of the constituents of his district.
Connecticut is in serious fiscal trouble. Many are faced with the harsh reality of having to uproot and leave their home. In recent years, more and more people struggle to pay their bills. These are real issues that real people have to deal with. They don’t need to listen to the petty name-calling, finger-pointing, and lies. We need Tony to fight for the people of Connecticut in a positive, uplifting manner. Re-elect Tony Hwang.
