To the Editor:

Another election season is upon us this year and the date is approaching us quickly.

Today, I want to ask the voters in district one in the city of New Britain to take an opportunity to come out to the polls an cast their votes for an outstanding individual, no other than Mr. Alden Russell.

Alden Russell is a 15 year resident of New Britain. He is married to Julie Russell and their son attends the local schools. He is currently serving his first elected term on the Board of Assessment Appeals. He is also a former Commissioner of Persons with Disabilities. He has volunteered to help people with addictions get recovery and move forward with their lives.

Alden is known for his involvement and dedication in many events and programs throughout the city. He looks forward to expanding his involvement throughout the 24th District, which includes the cities of New Britain and Newington.

As your state representative, Alden Russell will advocate for:

 LOWER SPENDING-CT: Spending is out of control and the taxes are getting beyond our ability to pay. We need to put a stop to it,

 BETTER EDUCATION: We continue to see a decline in education due to the overcrowding and la of resources. Many children fall through the cracks and we need to find a solution,

 DISABILITY SERVICES: We need to work on the ability and not the disability by bringing awareness to programs and services. It is important to look at the programs we have and decide where we need to expand.

ROAD REPAIRS-CT: Roads speak for themselves. We need to do proper repairs and make our roads safer.

 Substance abuse and rehabilitation services: It’s no secret we have a problem in CT due to substance abuse. It is important to spread awareness, educate, and work with programs to overcome and prevent addiction.

SUPPORTING OUR VETERANS: Veterans have given us our freedoms we have today. We need to continue to honor them for all they have given us.

To the voters of the 24th District in the city of New Britain, these are the important issues that Alden Russell will strive and work hard on for us after he is elected on Tuesday, Nov. 3. as our state representative at the State Capital in Hartford.

Please join me and come out to the polls and vote for Alden Russell.
