Representative Ruth Heden an asset for Milford

To the Editor:

I cannot say enough about what an asset our state Representative Ruth Heden is, to the Milford community.

I have been involved in an issue regarding the development where I live. I wrote to many legislators, and heard back from all, except for the one state representative I wrote to regarding my concerns.

This journey brought me many places, including to Concord to testify before the Commerce Committee of the state Legislature, of which Representative Heden is a member.

When Representative Heden heard that the issue was affecting her constituency, she immediately attended a residents’ meeting, and spoke to those affected by the situation, ensuring that their issues be acknowledged and their voices be heard.

I cannot say enough on this legislator’s behalf, and do not have to say who I will be voting for should she choose to run for re-election.
