Joe's remarkable record shows that he stands up for the important issues in our district. His list--and ours--includes jobs at the submarine base, the success of small businesses and exports, expanding support for the many college students in our district, and protecting Medicare and Social Security. Congressman Courtney listens and cares. We need him in Congress.

Courtney is top notch and has been very instrumental in helping keeping/growing jobs in CT

Joe is one of the few politicians I feel extremely comfortable having in office.

Our district is so diverse -- it's a tribute to Joe that he votes so consistently to benefit our area employers and employees-- academics, military/defense , small businesses, farmers and nonprofit agencies. If you get a chance to speak to him, you'll note that he is informed and candid, and devoted to the social services and health safety net that we all depend on. I have always supported him. I agree with Carol that we need him in Congress.

Joe has shown the ability to really work for the varied constituency he has in the 2nd CD. Students, EB workers, children, the elderly and small business. His quiet competence and ability to know the needs of the ordinary citizen are an immense asset to us all.
