Stephen Rubin for 136th District Representative - Sound Judgement and Dedication

A letter to the editor from Westport resident Hank Obst.


I would like to recommend Stephen Rubin for State Representative for 
the 136th District.  For 30 years, Stephen had a successful career in 
the medical and surgical industry.  Meeting budgets and payrolls, 
dealing with escalating costs and developing expansion plans, enables 
him to appreciate what businesses need to be successful.  He has been 
a member of the RTM for 20 years and works tirelessly for the 
residents of Westport.  As a Justice of the Peace, member of the 
Westport Police Departments Citizens Police Academy and active member 
of numerous other civic boards and committees Stephen knows how to 
work with various groups and accomplish goals for this community.

Stephen is an energetic member of Al's Angels, a charity that 
aids sick children and their families throughout Fairfield County and 
the tri-state area.  Whether it is fundraising, filling thousands of 
baskets at holiday time or delivering these to hospitals, Stephen is 
there with his sleeves rolled up working and helping us all to stay 
motivated.  He is a member of the board of trustees of the Police 
Athletic League, a past member of the host committee for the State of 
Connecticut Special Olympics and serves on numerous other civic and 
charitable committees.

Stephen takes an active role to make a positive difference for 
the people of Westport.  With his experience in private industry and 
his work with civic and charitable organizations, Stephen knows how 
to meet commitments and be fiscally responsible.  Combine these 
skills with a proven record of accomplishment working with fellow 
Republicans and Democrats and you find yourself with a unique 
individual who will be a great steward of our state’s resources.

I have known Stephen for many years and have never met anyone 
more dedicated to civic service and helping people.  Please vote for 
Stephen Rubin on November 6th.  You will then be taking an active 
role in making our state the best choice for families and businesses.

The byline says "Chris Rueli" Does that mean that the Patch editor co-authored this letter?

Curious, I was pretty curious when I saw that as well. The byline should have only read, "Hank Obst." I've corrected the error.
