2012 Candidate Spotlight: Daria Novak

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | August 8th, 2012

This is the first in a continuing series that will spotlight some of the lesser-known GOP candidates running for the House this election cycle.

When it comes to building or in this case, rebuilding a party or even a football team, one of the most important parts of doing is so is creating a foundation and a quality depth chart. One that supports those at the top, can step in when a crises occurs and is a solid contributor, on and off the political field.

Today, the focus is on the CT-2 House race, featuring Daria Novak who is running against GOP endorsed candidate, Paul Formica.

Ms. Novak is a rather unique candidate in today’s fractured and highly-suspicious climate of American politics. One who has tremendous political and policy experience, particularly in international affairs and crisis management during her tenure in the Reagan administration’s State Department. But also one who has assembled a formidable grassroots campaign that has strong Tea Party roots. Not the usual mix that has been the norm of “insurgent” candidates over the last three years.

As evidenced by her Issues page on her campaign site, she is dedicated to smaller government, lower taxes, more thorough border enforcement, true health care and education reform and is dedicated to the sanctity of life.

During her tenure with the Reagan Administration, she received a Superior Honor Award (which is the highest award that is given by the State Department) for her involvement in saving American lives in Haiti during the fall of Haitian President “Baby Doc” Duvalier back in 1986. She also received a Meritorious Honor Award for her work on the August 1982 U.S.-China Joint Communiqué, a bulwark work that is a beachead of U.S./China relations.

An experienced business owner, Ms. Novak is the Founder and the former President of ERUdyne, LLC. An international cross-cultural, business management training and consulting firm, located in her home state of Connecticut.

With strong policy experience, a business ownership background and strong local Tea Party support, A Small Corner of Sanity proudly endorses Daria Novak for the GOP nomination in CT-2.
