Editor, The Cheshire Herald:
I’ve lived in the 90th District for almost 30 years. Most of these years I’ve been pleased with the way our state representative has represented my interests, though in recent years, perhaps less so. But that’s how a democratic system works. Everyone doesn’t always have the same set of priorities and prescriptions.
In this upcoming election, I was thrilled to see the decision of Jim Jinks to run for office in my District. I strongly believe we need the kind of representation that Jim can bring.
He has demonstrated a high level of engagement in our community over and over again. He has done so through his service in public office in Cheshire, his volunteer work for his church, the schools and his founding and leadership of Bike Cheshire.
Beyond his experience, what most impresses me about Jim is his positive outlook, ability to bring people together and his rejection of divisiveness.
