I am writing on behalf of the candidacy of Jim McLaughlin, currently our Representative in District 57 who is running for re-election.

I am not personally well-acquainted with Mr. McLaughlin, so I was somewhat surprised to learn from a previous letter in your newspaper that he had failed to gain the endorsement of the Democratic Town Committee. This is a plus as far as I am concerned as I hold little brief for the chief luminaries in either the Republican or Democratic parties. The important thing to me is that Jim McLaughlin has served my district long and well over the past dozen years.
