Letter to the Editor: Rubino Will Not Be Restricted by Party Lines in His Quest For Solutions That Benefit Local Community

To the Editor:

I am writing to encourage your readers to support and vote for Dave Rubino, the democratic candidate for the 23rd House District to represent Lyme, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook and Westbrook. I have had the opportunity to meet Dave, and talk with him about the issues that drive him as a person and a professional. Dave is a lawyer, with both business and human rights experience. His work on international voting rights demonstrated a shift in him professionally, putting his money where his mouth is, and fighting for what he valued.

While the national election for President captures the most attention, it is our local representatives that have the biggest impact on our lives on a day-to-day basis. David’s international legal work was bi-partisan in nature, working under both republican and democratic presidents. We need that willingness to work towards solutions – regardless of party – that bring progress to our community.

Dave has stepped up in recent years to volunteer and work in his community as a member of the Old Lyme Economic Development Commission. As our state and community work our way towards recovery and navigating the COVID crisis, we will need leaders willing to listen and represent the interests of our small businesses and navigating what is best for our community from a public health standpoint. As a member of the Old Saybrook Board of Selectman and chair of the
Economic Development Commission, I am confident in David’s ability to provide that for our community.


Matt Pugliese,
Old Saybrook.
