Lakeville Journal: Vote to save democracy

First appeared in the Lakeville Journal on 10/25/2018 here.

Letter to the Editor:

If elected representatives at all levels of government won’t stand up and repudiate the lies and the policies of our president, then our local, state and national elections must be used to build a firewall against the continued erosion of our democracy. If left unchecked, our president and his supporters will continue to scapegoat certain groups and move to eliminate them, while our time-honored protection of clean air and water, health care and financial systems are thoughtlessly dismantled.

Electing Democrats across the board is the only way to stop our descent into chaos, and to do that YOU MUST VOTE on Nov. 6. 

Our Connecticut slate of Chris Murphy, Jahana Hayes, Maria Horn and David Lawson is the place to start.
