Vote Hyland


I met Rebecca Hyland in January when she advocated for voters’ choice. She will demonstrate that same commitment as state representative for Wallingford-Middlefield. Her experience as a public defender and high school teacher prepares her to advocate for:

Working families, older adults, and small businesses by addressing their economic needs;

Juvenile justice by supporting community-based interventions and services to reduce crime;

School safety, educational excellence, and access to life-long learning.

Recently, I campaigned with Rebecca and here’s what I learned: She listens. As state representative, she will act in the best interests of the 90th so that we all #ThriveTogether.

Connectingwith voters


I would like to recognize Rebecca Hyland, candidate for state representative for the 90th district. Since her campaign kicked off in March 2022, Rebecca has been a force to be reckoned with. Her campaign slogan, “Thrive Together” is the embodiment of this campaign.

Rebecca has worked to connect with voters and hear what they need from their representation in Hartford. Unlike her opponent, Rebecca will work across the aisle to bring back resources to Wallingford and Middlefield.

Rebecca will be there for all, not just what she thinks, she will listen, research and act.

Deborah Reynolds,

Our best interests


As Election Day draws near it is time to take a hard look at what our state has become under our current governor and partisan legislature. Connecticut needs elected officials who put the needs and best interests of their constituents first. State Representative Craig Fishbein (R–90th District) is that individual. As ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, he has supported legislation concerning children’s mental health, women’s health issues, opioid abuse, prevention and treatment, and juvenile justice and public safety reforms. He has worked diligently to ensure the rights and safety of citizens. I know that he will continue to faithfully serve the people in his district and the state.

Kathy Hannafey,
