Letter to the Editor: Rubino’s Record, Broad Experience on Racial Justice, Voting Rights Both Impressive and Timely

To the Editor:

We are writing in support of Dave Rubino’s candidacy for State Representative in CT’s 23rd House District. His record and broad experience in matters of racial justice and voting rights are very impressive, and very timely.

Paraphrasing Thomas Paine: “These are the times that try our souls.”: institutionalized racism, voter suppression, gerrymandering, a pandemic that has made health and healthcare inequities in the United States  apparent, and an elected executive hell-bent on undermining confidence in our elections.

Although those issues are ostensibly non-existent within the friendly confines of Old Lyme, CT; it is high time, nevertheless, that we build a cadre of elected officials who understand and are willing to act on these problems of national importance.


Christina J. & Thomas D. Gotowka,
Old Lyme.

    This endorsement seems more fitting for someone seaking a position at the ACLU, definatly not one seaking to represent a consertive district as the 23ed

    • Thomas D & Christina J. Gotowka says

      Thanks for the segue. We doubt that Mr. Rubino has any intention, at this point in his professional career, to pursue a position with the ACLU. His already robust resume includes litigating national voting rights cases, fighting government corruption, and supporting the rights of women. “I have spent the better part of my career fighting for the rule of law, human rights and democratic ideals at home and abroad”.
      It has been previously stated in LymeLine that, as our representative in the CT House, He will advocate “for a minimum wage that can provide for a family, an overhaul of our toxic student debt system, a functioning and affordable public healthcare system, and environmental policies that reflect a realistic understanding of the risks and challenges we face.
