CT Rail Commuters Champion Endorse Senator Hwang

*Letter to the editor:

No candidate has done more to help commuters than Tony Hwang

For over 20 years I have been an advocate for commuters on Metro-North, first on the CT Metro-North Rail Commuter Council and more recently in a new, independent organization, The Commuter Action Group.

Recognizing that the future of this vital public service depends on bipartisan cooperation, I have called for all candidates running for elected office this fall to take a simple pledge:  that they will caucus together, Democrat and Republican, in support of improved rail service for the state.

As an unaffiliated, independent voter I can now voice my support for those candidates whose track-record clearly demonstrates their support for better rail service in our state.

No candidate has done more to help commuters than Tony Hwang.

As both a State Representative and, more recently, a State Senator, he fought efforts to raid the Special Transportation Fund.  He has supported increased spending to keep our trains safe and on-time.  And he was instrumental in fighting Governor Malloy’s attempt to muzzle the Metro-North Commuter Council, achieving unprecedented bipartisan support for a bill to keep the Council independent.

So it is without hesitation that I endorse Tony Hwang for the State Senate and I encourage commuters to support his candidacy, too.
