Following their victories at the polls last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of speaking with State Sen. Will Haskell and State Rep.-elect Aimee Berger-Girvalo to get a sense of how this dynamic team plans to work together, along with re-elected State Rep. Ken Gucker, to represent Ridgefield in Hartford. The camaraderie of these three legislators representing Ridgefield was evident throughout the campaign.
Aimee was eager to extend her appreciation to the entire Ridgefield community. “Will and I are so proud to have the support of our community, and are deeply honored that the people of Ridgefield have elected, and put their faith in us, to represent them in Hartford. We are truly grateful to the amazing volunteers, poll workers, and to everyone who came out and voted. But that gratitude is not extended strictly to those who checked off our names on the ballot. Will and I have always intended to serve those who didn’t vote for us, with as much commitment as we have to those who did. It is not lost on us that the role of a legislator is to represent and fight for the people who make up their entire community -- to truly be an extension of the voice of the people. And the only way we can do that is to listen, and learn from our neighbors.”
