In Bridgeport he’s run for mayor, for State House a few times and maybe we missed a couple of things, and now Republican Ethan Book is setting his sights on Democratic incumbent Jim Himes for Congress. Book must primary GOP frontrunner Jayme Stevenson, ex 10-year chief executive of Darien, if he can qualify for the August ballot.
Ethan’s like a chihuahua nipping at your heels. When he bites he generally doesn’t let go, unless something else interests him. He’s a Don Quixote figure, very determined in his idealist beliefs, with a sternness for rationalizing everything he does.
Still, give him credit for trying.
I’m very pleased to formally announce my candidacy for 4th District Congress. I’m the credible Republican candidate for the 4th Congressional District:
I have a focused platform which gives the best chance of a Republican winning in a diverse district which is dominant Democrat.
I am well-qualified, with superior education, work experience including money center and international, success as a founder/owner of a small business and successful political experience.
My long-term experience in Connecticut has exposed me to and given me good understanding of the defects of our majority/near monopoly set of Democrat elected officials and the political establishment
I have record of accomplishment in important public issues.
I am well-linked in the urban community.
I’m fluent in Spanish.
A more complete public announcement is found in this 11-minute video. It’s logical, pungent, precise and timely! It goes with our campaign website BOOK4Congress2022.org, a website describing a platform with punch. A link for donations is included with it.
