To the Editor:
One of the many reasons I am very glad to hear that state Rep. Gary Turco is running for reelection is because he has worked so hard to keep us informed. He has continued to stay up-to-date on our concerns, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Once he was elected, Rep. Turco began holding regular community conversations. In an effort to keep in touch with his constituents, he has also become a fixture at Newington events. He is a regular presence in our community group functions and town celebrations. Rep. Turco’s social media pages and constituent mailings keep us current on the hard work he is doing for us in the state legislature.
Now that we’re in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rep. Turco has focused his efforts on keeping Newington residents safe and informed. In a public health crisis, knowledge is power. In recognition of that fact, he has been spreading the most current health and safety information on his social media accounts. He has also been connecting with constituents live each Friday on Facebook and having Zoom Town Halls. Because Newington’s seniors are a high-risk group during the pandemic, Rep. Turco has been making wellness calls to ensure that they are safe and healthy. I’ll be endorsing Rep. Turco because of his hard work to keep us safe, healthy, and informed. I ask that you join me in supporting him in the November election.
