Republican American: First responder not among backers of Rep. Brian Ohler

First appeared in the Republican American on 10/22/2018 here.

Letter to the Editor:

As I drive around Connecticut’s Northwest Corner, I see, among the Maria Horn yard signs, “Veterans back Brian,” “Nurses back Brian” and “Women back Brian.” Why men don’t back Rep. Brian M. Ohler, R-Canaan, is the subject for a different letter.

As a 20-year EMT on Norfolk’s ambulance squad and a retired chief, the Ohler sign that offends me is “1st Responders back Brian.” This is incorrect. Politicizing volunteer emergency responders smacks of the Republican ethos which has infected our national dialogue.

I strongly support Democrat Maria Horn for the 64th House District seat, as do many EMTs with whom I volunteer.
