FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to fairfield@dailyvoice.com

Dear Editor:

My name is Rima Bishuti and my family and I enjoy living in our beautiful town of Fairfield. I just want to mention a few words about our charismatic and hardworking, no-nonsense state Rep. Kim Fawcett, whom I have come to know very well over the years. 

Throughout life we are faced with challenges. Every parent struggles to do their best to provide for their family. Sometimes people are faced with challenges that are beyond their means or capabilities. That is when you reach out to your, be it neighbor, friend or community. If you are lucky enough to live in a town that has a caring and attentive representative like Kim Fawcett, then you can reach out to her. 

This has been my family’s experience with Kim. We are blessed with our daughter Rhea who has severe autism and struggles with the disorder on a daily basis.

We are constantly trying to do our best to teach her skills to make her as independent as she can be. Kim has been there always assisting us with these challenges; holding our hands, offering us her support and fighting our battles. She cares, she listens and she helps. She comes to you. You do not have to go and look for her. She finds you. She has time for you. She does not ask or care about how many votes it will get her. She listens to your issues and recommends and informs you of what is available out there and she helps you reach out to those resources.

I know that I am going to do all that is in my hands to get Kim to stay in elected office because I want the people who represent me to do exactly what she does. I do not know anyone else who is like her. In fact, I do not know any of the other people who represent me and that is not because I did not look for them but it is because they did not look for me the way that Kim Fawcett looks after her constituents. 

The others are too busy going around and partying with the big shots only because the big shots get them big votes. 

I know that Kim will definitely get my family’s vote. I know you will do the same because you want people like her in elected office just like I do. 

Good Luck Kim! You go girl!

Rima, a nanny is not what the district's people need in a state senator. Please consider the realities facing the citizens. The town of Fairfield has so many "contractual obligations" that taxes must rise by $10 million every year - that's an outrage. The state has similar contractual obligations and liberal must-haves that are driving us to official bankruptcy. The Federal Government has been virtually bankrupt for years - only the ability to print money allows our national leadership to avoid reality.

Kim Fawcett believes that govt has a role in most every corner of human activity in our society. It's thinking like her's that has brought our State and Fed govt to it's bloated fiscally disastrous state. If voters think that voting for people like Kim Fawcett because "she listens to your issues and recommends and informs you of what is available out there and she helps you reach out to those resources." is going to save our state from financial implosion they are deluding themselves. Kim Fawcett will never make a tough decision on behalf of fiscal sanity or individual liberty.

It is NOT in our interests to vote for those who tell us what we'd like to hear, or make us "feel good". What made this country great was people taking individual responsibility for their lives in a free constitutional republic - NOT govt involving itself in every aspect of our lives. We need to vote for candidates who are guided by those lights, who will make the tough decisions to preserve our ability to run our own lives and return our public finances to fiscal sanity. Kim Fawcett is NOT that person - that is a certainty! Moving her to state senate is a bridge too far and we would be ill-served by the promotion of more Liberal thinking in that chamber.
