Vote Tuesday for our country’s future — our children

I am a pediatrician and I vote. I vote on behalf of kids who cannot speak up for themselves. I vote so that the needs of children are prioritized by our elected leaders. I vote on behalf of the children I see in my clinic every day.
In a few short days, all of us will have the opportunity to make a difference by casting our votes, and I plan to use my vote to support our country’s future – our children.

Think twice about continuing Connecticut’s decades of single-party control

I have been an “unaffiliated” voter from the day I registered and I have for the most part voted that way, preferring to take the measure of each individual candidate rather than voting for any particular party.

I think that nearly two decades of a single party controlling our legislature have done enormous damage to our state’s economic vitality with no end in sight.
