New Stemerman Ad Highlights Need to Care “For the Most Vulnerable”

The new David Stemerman ad marks a different type of message for gubernatorial candidates in the state.

Dan Malloy. Taxes. Spending. Toilets.

They have all been subjects in the Connecticut gubernatorial race of late. The first three certainly deserve to be daily topics of discussion.

But David Stemerman, a businessman trying to petition his way on to the GOP primary ballot this August, is out with a new and unique ad highlighting the need for the state to care for its most vulnerable.

The ad features Stemerman visiting HARC, “a non-profit organization that supports people with intellectual disabilities, and their families, in the Greater Hartford area.”

“We’ve been all around Connecticut visiting organizations that provide care for the most vulnerable in Connecticut – and the state of our state should alarm all of us,” Stemerman said, in a press release about the new ad. “As our state careens from fiscal crisis to fiscal crisis – and sheds jobs and people – our government hasn’t been there to help those who are most in need, and the situation will only get worse unless we reverse course and chart a new path.”

The ad caught the attention of Fox News contributor Guy Benson on Wednesday night:

Stemerman, and other petitioning candidates, need north of 9,000 GOP signatures to earn a spot on the primary ballot. Mayor Mark Boughton (R-Danbury), ex-First Selectman Tim Herbst (R-Trumbull), and businessman Steve Obsitnik earned ballot spots through the convention process. Businessman Bob Stefanowski and Mayor Mark Lauretti (R-Shelton) are also petitioning.
