Deborah Kleckowski Congratulates Matt Lesser; Thanks Voters, Volunteers

Kleckowski, the Republican candidate who was defeated in her bid for the 100th State House District in Middletown by incumbent Democrat Lesser, writes a letter to the editor also thanking those who helped in her campaign.

To the Editor,

Congratulations to Representative Matt Lesser on his third win last Tuesday. We wish him well in his representation of the city of Middletown.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who voted for me, who helped on my campaign and who worked hard to get out the message of NO new taxes and public safety-Suspending the Prisoner Early Release program.

Though I may not have won, our voice can still be heard and must be heard. I pledge to you as a member of the Common Council and an active member in our community that I will continue to bring your voices forward. It is imperative that we work together to provide solutions for the challenges which lay ahead. 

I therefore extend an olive branch to Representative Matt Lesser, Mayor Drew and the majority party of the Common Council to work as a team not isolated by political affiliation. I encourage the voters to hold the newly elected officials to their word on reinvigorating the sluggish economy and to stop the massive tax hikes and perpetual spending.

Again, thank you to everyone who supported me in my effort and I look forward to working with you to make Middletown and even better place to live and to work.  God Bless America!

100 District State Representative Candidate (2012)
Member of the Middletown Common Council

Deb wasted $30,000 in taxpayer funds on a vanity run, ran a purely negative campaign that focused on union-busting and fear of transgendered people and got beat nearly 3:1. Now she extends an olive branch? Who cares.

I second that comment from Diane. Deb is truly out there supporting our community on a continual basis. There's not an event she doesn't attend and goes out of her way to greet everyone - no matter their affiliation. We ALL matter to her in Middletown and she works hard for us! Thank you Deb!
