Veach is my choice


On May 19, the Republican Party held its convention to select a candidate for the House of Representatives, District 30, in which I was a delegate. Berlin town councilor Donna Veach won the endorsement of the Republican Party. However, the other nominee, Pastor Jim Townsley, filed to primary against Veach.

As a delegate, I could not support Pastor Townsley due to some very troublesome information discovered when doing a Google search of him. The search revealed articles that had to do with abuse by a youth pastor in his baptist church.

In my opinion, the Pastor’s actions, and lack thereof, demonstrated poor judgement, poor leadership, and was grossly irresponsible.

I fully support Donna Veach and feel she is the best person to represent Berlin and Southington as our State Representative. She has strong conservative principles, has experience in local government as a Town Councilor and understands the needs and issues facing Berlin and Southington. Donna has been an effective leader in business and in the community, and is committed to working hard for all citizens.

Please vote for Donna Veach for State Representative, District 30, in the Tuesday, Aug. 11 primary election.

Man of integrity


I would like to take a moment to ask the voters in the 30th district to support Jim Townsley in the Aug. 11 primary for state representative. I have known Jim for over 30 years and have always found him to be a man of integrity who truly cares about people. He has come out strongly supporting our police and standing firmly for a fiscally responsible budget. He also spoke out against the idea of tolls in the state and has been a Republican for as long as I have known him. I am confident that he will be someone who will represent all of the people of his district.

Through all the mud-slinging and smear tactics that have been used against him during this campaign Jim has persevered and has not wavered in trying to bring the needed change for this state. He is a conservative who truly believes that things can change in Hartford.

I would ask that you please consider supporting Jim on Tuesday, Aug. 11.
