From Manny Bataguas, Republican challenger of Christina Ayala, Democratic nominee for the 128th State House District that covers the East Side and the Hollow:
Manuel Bataguas is the Republican candidate running for State Rep in the 128th district. His opponent Christina Ayala, recently chose to flee the scene of a car accident which she was involved in only to return after being chased down by a civilian. What’s worse? There were children involved in this affair. “While I’m thankful that Miss Ayala and all involved were not injured, I am disturbed by the lack of responsibility displayed by the Democratic candidate.” Bataguas said.
“As a candidate myself, I believe that all of us who step into the public eye should display responsibility in everything we do. I am asking for your vote on November 6th because I believe my life experiences exhibit the kind of character you deserve and should expect from your representatives.”
Bataguas was educated at Hartford University, Pace University and Casa Pia of Lisbon in Portugal, has an extensive background in finance including time served as a Vice-President of Stamford Savings Bank and working for International Bank in New York. He is currently a small business owner and newspaper publisher.
“I know right from wrong and would never leave the scene of an accident.” Bataguas said.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the Democrats have failed our city for years by providing us with irresponsible government officials. I am asking for your vote to send a message that the citizens of Bridgeport want to restore responsibility in our elected offices.”
