Longtime Manchester resident Rudy Hrubala has declared his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the 9th Connecticut House District seat currently held by .
“The time has come for the residents of East Hartford and Manchester to have a voice in Hartford that will support policies designed to turn our economy around," Hrubala said in a statement.
Hrubala said he looks forward to the campaign ahead and welcomes the opportunity to stand up for the 9th District. Former Manchester Mayor, Lou Spadaccini, wholeheartedly endorses Rudy and says “I know Rudy will always do what’s best for all and he will be an excellent representative of our community in the Legislature. Rudy sees a need to change the course of State Government.”
“The current state of affairs in Connecticut is unacceptable and if we are to restore Connecticut to its rightful place as a great State to live in, to work in, and to raise a family in then we must chart a new course. The current Democratic majority believes the way to do this is through the imposition of new taxes and fees and by increasing existing taxes and fees. We’ve seen the effects of this approach and it simply does not produce the desired result which is a better Connecticut for all”
Rudy earned a BS Degree in Education and, shortly after graduation, became a U.S. Marine serving in Viet Nam with the First Recon Bn. Upon his return he entered the world of business and commerce and it was there that he learned firsthand what the wants, needs, and desires of both small businesses and large corporations are. He intends to use this knowledge and experience to create an atmosphere conducive to much needed job creation in order to move Connecticut forward.
“It will be my goal to do the greatest good, for the greatest number of people, over the longest period of time using common sense as my guide.”
Hrubala is joining with House Republican candidates across the state in making a Common Sense Commitment to Connecticut.
“The following principles will guide my decision-making as your State Rep:
- Spend no more than you have.
- Borrow no more than you can afford to pay back.
- If it’s not broken, don’t fix it; if it’s not working get rid of it.
- The more government tries to do, the less it does well.
- We should have all the government we need, but only the government we need.”
