Human experiences, by their very nature, are unpredictable.

I have known Jan Collins for over 40 years as a teacher, colleague, and friend, and she has consistently exemplified the ideal of making a positive difference.

I saw Jan “in action” as I drove her around Wilton, Farmington, and Jay, and watched her campaign from door to door. Always smiling and sincere, she listened, encouraged, and fostered hope for the common hard-working small-town resident.

Her firsthand experiences of childhood poverty and disadvantage have instilled in her not only empathy but also a genuine desire to improve lives.

Jan is clear about her plans and expectations: Better health care, a stronger economy, criminal justice reform, and a sustainable natural environment are her priorities.

Jan offers predictable leadership and needs-based action. I enthusiastically endorse Jan Collins as a state senator for District 17.

I strongly urge people to join me in voting for her.

Mary Sirois, Wilton
