Oz and Monte for change

The News-Times (Sunday) - - More Opinion -

There are many peo­ple in this state who are nei­ther far left nor far right. These are the mod­er­ates who know we need to bring about change and they are dis­sat­is­fied with the tired old rhetoric that the two well-funded D and R can­di­dates for gov­er­nor con­tinue to spout. And they can af­ford to spout it ev­ery­where — TV, ra­dio, so­cial me­dia.

Is it re­ally their po­si­tions or those of their par­ties who won’t give up an inch of their turf and ex­pect ev­ery­one to buy that pap? Don’t buy it peo­ple. There is a bet­ter an­swer, but it will take courage to make the change you want.

In­de­pen­dent thinkers Oz Griebel and Monte Frank — one former Repub­li­can, one former Demo­crat — have formed that per­fect union. Oz Griebel and Monte Frank are the only choice for those of us who live on the mid­dle ground. We don’t like to see our hard-earned tax­payer money squan­dered, but we also want to make sure our most vul­ner­a­ble are cared for and that dis­crim­i­na­tion of any kind — race, gen­der and sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion — has no place in our Con­necti­cut.

While the other can­di­dates have been busy slather­ing on TV makeup for their high-cost, glitzy cam­paign ads that keep them at arm’s length from the very peo­ple they pur­port to rep­re­sent, Oz and Monte are sit­ting in liv­ing rooms around the state, look­ing peo­ple in the eye and giv­ing them di­rect, hon­est an­swers. No one can out­work them, and no one can match their sin­cere pas­sion. Please lis­ten to them. I know you’ll like what you hear.

On Nov. 6, vote for Oz and Monte. Don’t over-think this. This is not a chess game where one move might lead to an­other guy get­ting in. Be coura­geous. Change is hard, but the choice for this elec­tion has never been eas­ier.
