The following statement was issued by the West Hartford Republican Town Committee on March 25, 2021.
The West Hartford Republican Town Committee condemns the recent racist and inflammatory commentary aimed at Asian Americans by State Representative Mike Winkler (D-Vernon). As an elected official, he has an obligation to support all members of our community. We urge all our elected officials to call for Rep. Winkler’s resignation. As a community, we need to embrace our diversity and respect all individuals and cultures. We all have a responsibility to call awareness to any forms of hate, racism or anti-semitism.
