LTE: Cristin Turns Passion into Action
Cristin McCarthy Vahey is the state representative for all residents in my district. She has proven time and time again that she takes her responsibility as a legislator seriously, always listens to her constituents regardless of affiliation, learns about issues and context, connects the issues with policy and shows up to work in Hartford ready to roll up her sleeves and lean in while never forgetting her roots in social work and ministry. Her unique combination of work ethic, intelligence, humanity and emotional connection to her constituents is why I enthusiastically support Cristin’s re-election.
Volunteering with Cristin for Fairfield CARES Community Coalition has allowed me to get to know her not only as a capable state legislator but also as a town resident passionate about helping our young people make healthy choices, and somehow finding the time to effectively engage and lead our town’s designated prevention council. Cristin is the real deal: a mom who fiercely and unconditionally loves her family, a professional who knows how to connect, immerse herself and distill the essence of an issue, and a volunteer who has the common good at heart and is willing to give freely of herself, her time and her talent, even when nobody's watching.
I am proud to be Cristin’s constituent, fellow volunteer and friend. Please join me and re-elect Cristin as your state representative for Connecticut’s 133 District.
