10/17/11 Kim Augustine writes to endorse Greenwich Board of Education candidate Anna Saras Povinelli

To the editor:

I have known Anna and her family for 10 years. Over that time, I have come to know Anna as an extremely intelligent, capable, dedicated friend and mother. I believe that she possesses every essential characteristic that would qualify her to be an excellent member of the Board of Education.

It is hard to find someone who has more of a vested interest in our educational system.

She has four children in the Greenwich public schools. Her children and their education are her number-one priority. She is "in the trenches" and involved first hand with what goes on at their schools at every level. Her in-depth knowledge and understanding of the system is beyond compare.

I have also had the privilege of working on a board with Anna for three years. She was an integral part of the team. While never afraid to share her insight and thoughtful analysis, she always listened and took into account everyone's perspective. Anna is a team player, always striving to reach the best decision together.

Anna is an extremely smart person who will not rush to judgment. She is a thorough investigator and researches everything to ensure she has the facts before making conclusions. Refreshingly, Anna is not afraid to take a stand on a matter she believes in.

She has the strength and confidence to hold her ground. Simultaneously, I appreciate her willingness to see all sides of a discussion.

Lastly, she has the energy to never settle. She will always strive to achieve what is best for the children. She won't rest until she gets there. She is not a quitter. She gives everything she does a thousand percent. She has a heart of gold and she wants every child in the Greenwich public schools to get an education that is every bit what it should be, and then some.

She is an Advocate for every child in the Greenwich public schools, she is No Nonsense, she is Accountable to every parent and taxpayer in Greenwich. I urge you to vote for Anna Povinelli for the Board of Education.

10/17/11 Jim Himes Says Thank you

reelect

Dear Friends,

As another fundraising quarter closes, I want to thank you for your continued support. Your work, friendship, and contributions are absolutely essential to our effort to push against the radical Republicans in the House and for a return to thoughtful and constructive leadership that focuses on the millions of hard-working Americans who still cannot find jobs.

There was a rare glimmer of hope this week as we passed three bipartisan trade deals that economists estimate will create just shy of 80,000 jobs nationwide. We also passed a bill that will provide assistance to Americans who lose their jobs due to trade.

However, there was also business as usual. For the SEVENTH time this year, Republicans voted to restrict a woman's right to choose. They also brought up two bills that erode the regulations that keep our air and water safe and clear.

This is not job creation.

Job creation is working in a bipartisan way to show the world--consumers, businesses large and small, and investors--that Washington is a functional place where good ideas matter. Job creation is putting people to work fixing our bumpy roads and rebuilding our crumbling bridges. We know we will make these investments eventually, so why not do it now--when folks need the jobs and before more people are injured or killed in automobile accidents? Job creation is enabling entrepreneurs to turn ideas into products. Job creation is also fixing our schools so our kids are ready to compete. I appreciate your support for these priorities. I couldn't fight this fight without you.

Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,
Jim
