Dear Editor:

The public spectacle of this year’s Presidential race has overshadowed the local candidates on the ballot, but who represents us in Hartford is also an important decision. This fall, voters in West Hartford have the opportunity to elect Derek Slap for State Representative. And, in this very divisive election year, Derek Slap is a refreshing change; a candidate committed to working across the aisle to build consensus.

What makes our town special is that its a place where you want to be no matter what stage of life you’re in. Families come for the strong schools, empty nesters stay for the strong, vibrant community. To keep it that way we need an effective advocate that will protect us from property tax increases and fight against cuts to education funding.

Derek Slap is the best choice for West Hartford.
