Fairfield, CT – Over Colony Grill pizza pies and across tables decked out with American flags and red and blue balloons, Tony Hwang discussed the issues with local folks that came down to support him at Colony Grill as he launched his Re-Election Campaign for State Representative of the 134th District (Fairfield/Trumbull).
“It’s an honor and a privilege and I’m extremely grateful for the people who came here to support me as an elected official,” said Hwang. “My critical mission is to ‘commit to the community’ in everything I do and practice legislative government with a common sense approach.”
Looking out at the diverse gathering of supporters, Hwang said, “Our community is represented here – families, youth leaders, seniors, teachers, organizations. They represent the pure essence of what our community is all about.”
With regard to a common sense approach government, Hwang said, “The first thing you want to recognize is that state government needs to reflect the needs and wants of people they represent. However, state government has moved away from that. We have to create jobs, enable business growth, and take the tax burden away from citizens by reducing governmental spending. As we reduce spending, we also have a responsibility to ensure that we protect the most vulnerable and work to enable them to succeed.”
Hwang continued, “We need to balance the role of protecting and enabling the most vulnerable against the financial burden on CT taxpayers. I’m committed to that and am willing to make the hard decision for the long term financial health of our state. I’ve always approached this job with the respect and consideration that I represent everyone.”
