Vote for John Larson on Tuesday


Next Tuesday is Election Day.

This newspaper strongly endorses Democrat John Larson as the next U.S. Congressman from Connecticut's first district. Larson is an experienced and dedicated public official who has served in the state assembly as Speaker of the House where he demonstrated considerable talent and ability as a legislator. This experience, which his opponent lacks, will enable Mr. Larson to effectively represent the interests of his Hartford constituents. He will also support the Democratic agenda in the areas of education, social security reform, employment, the environment, and health care reform.

We also need to send John Larson to Washington to help defend President Clinton from the unfair, partisan attack being led by the Republican leadership in congress. We should vote as many Republicans as possible out of office and replace them with Democrats. Republicans must be defeated to regain control of congress from the extreme element of the party led by Newt Gingrich who is trying to overturn the election of Bill Clinton.

Despite Kevin O'Connor's apparent moderate views, we think that, if he is elected, he will have to follow the leadership of the Republican party, which is controlled by far-right interests, in order to get desirable committee appointments.

We urge all of our readers to get out and vote for John Larson on Tuesday. You can also help by calling your friends and relatives in other parts of the country and convincing them to vote for Democratic candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. There are lots of close races all over the country where Democrats need as much help as possible.

We also encourage our readers to return Chris Dodd to the senate. He has served Connecticut well for eighteen years and deserves to continue.

In addition, vote for Barbara Kennelly to be our next Governor. Hartford residents will be much better off if she is elected because of her more progressive views on such issues as welfare reform, health care, education, and child and family services.

And finally, vote yes on the bonding propositions 3, 4, & 5. Hartford needs the money to rebuild and renovate our schools.
