By Chris Meek for Congress' campaign headquarters

STAMFORD, CT -
Greenwich Selectman David N. Theis has joined the growing list of people who have endorsed Chris Meek for Congress.

“Chris Meek doesn't just talk about problems, he solves them,” said Theis. “I have seen firsthand what he has accomplished in the community and Chris' efforts have helped keep people in their homes. Chris is exactly the type of practical, hands-on leader we need representing the 4th District in Washington.”

Meek, a father of three, lives in Stamford with his wife Christine and their children.

“To have a dedicated public servant like David Theis support our campaign is humbling and brings us closer to defeating our opponent in November,” Meek said. Theis' endorsement joins a growing list of prominent people supporting Chris Meek in his bid to become the 4th District’s congressman. Already supporting Meek are former Lieutenant Governor Mike Fedele, State Representative Terrie Wood (R-141), State Representative Livvy Floren (R-149), State Representative Mike Molgano (R-144) and Assistant Republican Leader in the Connecticut House of Representatives DebraLee Hoovey (R-112).

02/02/12 PRESS RELEASE: Greenwich Resident Linda McMahon's Statement on the STOCK Act

To The Greenwich Roundup Editor,

I wanted to share with you an important video Linda just released to the media about something that is happening right now in Washington. Congress is debating the STOCK Act, a measure aimed at ending insider trading by members of Congress. The Act stops short of real prevention measures and Linda is urging them to fix that by requiring a blind trust.

I wanted to share this with you because it is just one more example of the professional politicians in Washington putting themselves before the American people. Take a look at this video and feel free to email me back with your thoughts about the STOCK Act and what Linda is proposing. Tomorrow, I’ll get back to you with some of the best responses.

Sincerely,

Corry Bliss
Campaign Manager
Linda McMahon for Senate

Linda McMahon's Statement on the STOCK Act

Linda McMahon today released the following statement and video regarding the STOCK Act:

"Congress is right to address abuses of insider information by members in both chambers but must be realistic about their approach. The STOCK Act is nothing more than asking the fox to watch the hen house. It takes the important step of making insider trading illegal but stops short of any real provision to prevent it. If Congress is serious about restoring integrity and not just providing another smoke screen, I urge them to require members to place their investments into a blind trust."
