One of the benefits of running for public office is one gets a chance to connect: hear stories, meet real people, and tell stories. That meaningful exchange brings us all closer and unites us for the greater good. I was lucky to be in the presence of a healthcare worker and caregiver the other day, who was caring for a dying warrior- a 92-year-old male holocaust survivor turned Hamden resident. 

Like me, she was a foreigner and spoke with an accent. At that moment, she was more concerned with her accent and immediately apologized to me. I begged her to never again apologize for speaking with an accent. I was staring back at a person whose job as a healthcare worker in a pandemic - caring for the aged - had set her apart in more ways than one. 

Her dedication to preserving life mattered to me, more than anything else in the world and so I thanked her for her service. She seemed taken aback,  and then she too thanked me, for running for office.

 My joy was full. My job was done. I had made a great connection with a beautiful human and I prayed for the dying old man. That's all that mattered to me.

Thanks to Governor Lamont for acknowledging my race  

I was humbled by the support I received from everyday people. I ran a grassroots campaign without a team and with no knowledge of politics or what it takes. During this process, I met the most amazing, selfless people and for that I am grateful.

 For me, this was about connecting with the people, listening to their needs and voices, and imagining how to help make that difference for them. I am happy this happened when and how it did and I look forward to more engagement with the people in my community.

 Thanks to everyone who supported me, and believed in my vision. This is not the end.

"We voted for you because you're a girl!" Thanks, Annabel for voting with your parents!!!

Weruche George : Oct. 5, 2020


Running for public office after getting on the ballot 40 days ago, during a #Pandemic has got to be one of the most challenging things I've done this year. But it's also one of the most important and necessary things too because if there's anything we've learned in 2020, it's that more people are disproportionately affected by a downturn in the economy. COVID-19 has made this even more obvious now for so many people struggling daily. Inequalities that exist continue to plague residents who keep worrying about balancing their well-being and responsibilities and that's why it's important to have representation that will understand these needs from a first-hand perspective and be willing to fight for these needs.

In 29 days, we'll be casting the last of our votes to change the future of our democracy. My request is for you to vote for people who you believe can listen to you, relate to your plights, and who have proven records of fighting for EQUALITY. Vote on Row 4G. I'm a Petitioning candidate who wants to see more people represented and protected during a crisis.
