Rubino would bring right values to 23rd District job
On November 3, Connecticut’s 23rd House District will have the rare opportunity to elect a truly extraordinary public servant. Dave Rubino has practiced law for 24 years, most of them overseas as a human rights lawyer. There he witnessed government at its worst and learned how to improve it. He and his family recently moved to Old Lyme and Dave now wants to use his experience, skills, and judgment for our benefit in Hartford. We must accept this offer.
President Donald Trump’s values have permeated and infected the Republican Party everywhere, including our state and the 23rd District. Dave’s values are antithetical to Trump’s. As a state representative, he will promote them in a powerful, persuasive, and respectful way. Through his law practice and service on Old Lyme’s Economic Development Commission, Dave has become intimately familiar with our region’s economic condition, and he is deeply committed to improving it. His other priorities include universal voting rights, a strong safety net, health care for all, racial justice, a reasonable minimum wage, student debt relief, affordable housing, and environmental reform.
Please visit www.rubino2020.com. Dave has a thoughtful “plan for everything.”
If you support Dave’s values, you could not elect a better advocate.
