LETTER: Hwang, a ‘say one thing, do another’ politician

Letter-to-the-EditorNEWTo the Editor:

I am severely disappointed by the lack of transparency and honesty that our current State Senator, Tony Hwang has exhibited during his time serving the 28th district. Tony is a classic “say one thing, do another” politician, whose decisions are motivated by how they will help his political future, not his constituents. The list of his contradictions is long, but here are a few examples.

Tony says he wants to help those most in need, but he consistently votes against the minimum wage. He says he cares about the security of our school children but then votes against $22M in school security funding. He claims to encourage voter participation but then votes against every bill that would help register more voters.

Tony takes credit for other people’s work, like the recent temporary restraining order bill. Yes, he voted for the bill requiring people with restraining orders to surrender their guns within 24 hours. But he also put forward three amendments to effectively kill the bill, and reduce its effectiveness, such as telling police chiefs they could not use that information when deciding whether or not to give a permit.

I am voting for Phil Dwyer because I trust he will do what he says. Phil has integrity, and he will put the interests of Fairfield above any personal ambitions. I encourage everyone in the 28th district to vote for Phil Dwyer.
