West Hartford, CT – The West Hartford Republican Town Committee is an organization that is respectful, inclusive and diverse in thought and make up reflecting the make up of our town. As a committee, we stand with our fellow residents of color and all who have been subject to abuse and racism. The senseless death of George Floyd perpetuates a cycle we must break! To do so, and in conjunction with the strength of the human spirit we must promote RESPECT and COMMUNITY. Respect is the cornerstone on how we can move forward, teaching ourselves and our children that respect for both individuals and law-enforcement is vital and responsible. We must embrace Respect as a two-way street to foster a stronger community for now and the future. It is now more important than ever that we come together to build (and in some cases re-build) the bridge of respect and community for all.
We have a unique opportunity to frame the discussion as we communicate the opening of our town and state due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. The Committee calls on all members and members of our community at large to be a part of the education and healing process. Let’s work together to foster a stronger community where respect, and kindness are the pillars we work with towards the goal of respect for all. During this time, we are reminded by Elie Wiesel, “When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy…Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion or political view, that place must - at that moment- become the center of the universe.” We can not be silent is his message and one that we need to live by today.
Let us come together no more than ever in mutual Respect to honor our diverse community.
We have an opportunity to engage and educate our fellow residents about why we are republicans. Our town and our state is at a critical juncture - Government is not the sole solution to growth and sustainability. We need to work together to help address the business of leading a fiscal policy that is self reliant and provides a joint collaboration to solve our current issues and prepare for the future.
