Editor, The Cheshire Herald:
I write with a sense of urgency to encourage Cheshire and Wallingford citizens to support Jim Jinks, candidate for State Representative in the 90th District. He is currently serving as Second District Town Councilor.
Jim holds an undergraduate degree in history from UConn and a master’s degree in public policy from Trinity College and is currently a VP at Mediabids, an advertising firm.
For the past 18 years, Jim has held leadership roles in private industry and he’s well known as the founder of Bike Cheshire, an award-winning nonprofit working to make Cheshire more bike-friendly — an initiative that helps small businesses, and improves property values, public health and the safety of our streets. He lives in Cheshire with his wife, Marie, and their four kids.
Jim is an incredibly dedicated, intelligent and caring gentleman. His leadership skills will make him an asset to both Cheshire and Wallingford. His values are our values. Family, community, giving back, good jobs, staying safe and healthy, getting our kids back to school, thriving towns with a high quality of life and limiting tax increases on the middle class and hardworking families, while maintaining essential services.
It is time for a State Representative in the 90th we can be proud of.
