John Shaban Candidate Statement: Focus on Our Families and Our Towns

On Nov. 3 the residents of Easton, Redding and Weston have a choice for state representative between a long-serving, dedicated and pragmatic public servant on both the Independent and Republican lines, or an activist for national protests and debates on the Democratic line. 

I served as your state representative for three terms from 2011 to 2017 and did not run for a fourth term opting instead to run for U.S. Congress. I have remained engaged in our communities, and ask for your vote for my re-election in 2020.  As I did during my six years as your state rep, I remain focused on the needs of our small towns — and in particular, on local control of schools and zoning.

By comparison, our current freshman State Rep. Anne Hughes of Easton has spent her first 16 months engaged in national protests and movements. As I did from 2011-2017, I will focus first on our families and our towns.  Thank you for your support and consideration!
