Hwang listens and is inclusive

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor:

I was a relatively new resident of Fairfield when I first met Tony Hwang at a local coffee house six years ago. I recall this pleasant and engaging individual smiled at me and introduced himself.

Since that time, I’ve had the pleasure of talking with Tony on a regular basis about his passion for the political process and his support of women’s issues and same sex marriage, just to name a few.

Tony and I don’t always share the same political views. As a life-long Democrat, I have different perspectives, which I have always felt free to share with him. I grew up in an era when politics was seen as a useful enterprise, a way to make a difference in the world.

Today, there are lots of reasons to be cynical about politics. However, when I talk with Tony I feel politics is an important vehicle to help change the world for the betterment of all citizens.

Tony makes clear through his actions that he is inclusive, that he is an advocate for the underrepresented and vulnerable and that he truly embraces the idea that people have a right to equality and the pursuit of happiness.

I support Tony Hwang because even with our occasional minor differences in political views, he is someone I know will represent me and will fight for the values that are important to me. His ability to connect with people, to actively listen to others and to stay open to differing viewpoints solidifies his appeal to me as a voter.
