WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed, original letters to the editor. Send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To the Editor,
I urge all voters to support a great candidate for U.S. Congress, my friend Steve Obsitnik.
I have known Steve personally for several years. I attended Staples High School with his wife, Suzanne, and our girls have been together in school since preschool in Westport.
I have had many opportunities to spend time with Steve. He is a smart man, a decent human being, a good father and a good friend. I am confident he would make a wonderful congressman.
Steve grew up in the 4th District and he understands our community and the challenges we face. Steve is a graduate of Stamford High School and the U.S. Naval Academy, and he served our nation as an officer on board a nuclear attack submarine.
Following his service in the Navy, Steve earned an master’s in business administration at the Wharton School of Business and then pursued a career as an executive in the technology sector. Steve's education, military service and business background make him uniquely qualified to represent the interests of our district on such critical issues as education, the economy and national security.
Importantly, Steve is a dedicated husband and a terrific father, and he is committed to working across party lines in Congress to solve the problems facing this generation and the next.
Steve Obsitnik will make our district proud, and I hope you will join me in supporting him on Nov. 6.
Andrea Moore, Westport
