To the Editor:

I am pleased to support Doug Sutherland for State Representative.

Doug is a passionate and tireless advocate for every citizen. He is deeply devoted to his family and his community. If elected as our state representative he will make Connecticut’s government even more transparent, effective and efficient. Doug will keep his constituents informed and he will listen to Trumbull residents about what is important to them. Most important he just won’t do this at election time. As an active member of Democracy for America, Fairfield County and a long-time town volunteer, Doug has already made a difference for our community.

Doug is right on the issues. He is for sensible gun control, a living minimum wage and property tax reform. Most important, as part of the Democratic Caucus, Trumbull will have a seat at the table when important legislative initiatives are discussed.

Doug is active in supporting local grassroots organizations working on health, environmental, safety and good governance issues. Doug knows the challenging issues in Connecticut better than most. He will use his vast work and political experience to continue to move our state forward.

Trumbull needs someone who is in touch with our Community. Doug will be an unwavering advocate of all Trumbull citizens in Hartford.

Let’s get behind Doug on Election Day. Let’s put him in Hartford. Vote Sutherland on Nov. 4.
