Small community business for Kupchick

To the Editor:

I have known Brenda Kupchick for many years. My father and I have had the pleasure of serving her family and her husband Peter’s through the decades at our family owned pharmacy on Black Rock Turnpike.

Brenda Kupchick is the most accessible, hardworking, state representative I have ever encountered. In her first term as Fairfield’s representative of the 132nd District, Brenda has worked diligently with my colleagues and I as well as her other Fairfield constituents on an array of issues.

These past few years have been difficult for many small family owned community businesses. The reasons for this have been many including; a slow economy, higher and higher taxes, and more government regulations and mandates. The independent community pharmacy business faced these issues and many more. The current governor and his administration, through union negotiations, proposed limits for state employees on where and who could fill their prescriptions. He proposed outsourcing them to an out-of-state mail order company.

Recognizing this would cost Connecticut jobs and tax revenues, Brenda worked tirelessly across party lines to try to preserve a patient’s right to choose their own pharmacist and to keep these prescriptions (read “jobs and tax revenue”) in Connecticut.

I was proud and thankful each time I saw Brenda on TV on the floor of the house championing this cause and many other important issues to the people of the 132nd District.

Being a small business owner herself Brenda, understands the importance of keeping businesses open and viable. Brenda knows these businesses, by and large, are run by people who live in Fairfield and support a vast amount of community activities through their successes. Also, she values each and every job that these stores and shops provide.

For a first-time minority representative, I was impressed by Brenda’s ability to attain recognition and respect in a very partisan legislature. I submit Brenda will be an even more effective voice for Fairfield in a second term. I proudly endorse Brenda Kupchick for state representative in Fairfield’s 132nd District.
