A Fighter for Manchester

This is a blog on why you should support and vote for Geoff Luxenberg for re-election to the Connecticut House of Reprsentatives. He is a clear fighter for Manchester and always will be.  

I am writing this regarding a man who has spent his life fighting for the people of Manchester. Geoff Luxenberg takes the time to listen and make you feel like you really matter.

I have spent the past year volunteering in the town and when Geoff is there, I see him talking on the phone personally with constituents. How many other politicians do you see personally calling up and talking to their constituents personally?

A lot of people, including myself who strive for a career in public service, hold Geoff as one of our inspirations and people that we look to on what to do when we are there. Geoff has spent the last two years and longer fighting for us, the people of Manchester since literally his college graduation. He served on the Commission for Elderly Services and People with Disabilities, which I serve on now and has a record of fighting for seniors and people with disabilities.

In April 2011, Geoff introduced a bill to help save money for low income seniors. Seniors have worked hard for fifty years and they deserve to be helped and told that they will not have to suffer in this economic crisis. Geoff has been that fighter for them and this is why he deserves re-election. Later on last year, Geoff helped fund money for the Whiton Library. This is further proof that he is a clear fighter for his community and does what he thinks is right. Geoff goes out and canvasses every single day, because he understands that his job as a fighter for his constituents is his number one priority as a legislator.

His work at MACC charities proves that he is an overall wonderful person and cares number one about helping those that are less fortunate. He doesn't just care about his career, but instead always offers to help others like he has done with me.

Please I am asking you, not because I am Geoff's friend personally, but because there are few others (Cassano, Diminico, Rojas, and Thompson excluded) that have fought for the town of Manchester and its interests more than Geoff Luxenberg. For our interests, for our future and for the very fabric of what our town stands for and its motto "City of Village Charm" we need to send a clear fighter back to the Connecticut State Capital.

If you want somebody who isn't just a state representative, but a friend, who will listen to you and fight for your interests; who will fight for your job, security, and prosperity and those of the town than there is no other person to vote for than Geoff Luxenberg.

He has your interests and the interests of Manchester, Connecticut at heart. No one else's. So I am asking you, from a Manchester resident to a Manchester resident, if you want someone in Hartford who doesn't worry about getting re-elected, adhering to the special interests or run negative campaigning rather than saying what he is going to do, someone who cares about you and only you and your interests and someone you could call a true friend, than the person you need to vote for is Geoff Luxenberg.

Please vote for Geoff for the future of what we stand for as a greater community, and so that our motto as the "City of Village Charm" will not cease to exist. Thank You! Joe Young
