On January 2, 2012, I was driving to my office in Downtown Milford with my husband when we saw Congressman Chris Murphy walking along Broad Street with his small son Owen. Concerned that they were alone and perhaps even lost, we pulled over to offer help.
“Owen likes trains,” Chris explained, “So every once in a while we take a train to a new town, get out and take a walk, and have some lunch together.”
I was struck by this encounter because here was a very busy Congressman, in a campaign for US Senate, commuting weekly between Washington, DC and Cheshire, CT, taking the time to be with his son. He had a new baby at home and felt it was important to be alone with the older child, and he knew that a (then) 3 and a half year old “likes trains”.
And Linda McMahon? Yes I saw her briefly walk the same sidewalk at the Oyster Fest. Last time I saw her she came to have a rally on City Hall steps and had her handlers indiscriminately cut the limbs off our trees in Doughboy Park to enhance the media’s camera angles.
I know who I am voting for on Nov. 6th.
