For the past four decades, the legislature in Connecticut has given us nothing but increased spending and higher taxes to cater to special interest groups. We need fresh ideas to grow the middle class and help protect families who are suffering from these bad policies.
INCREASE HOUSEHOLD INCOMES
By cutting wasteful government spending, we can lower taxes and put more money back in the pockets of the working class. I will work to end ideologically driven expenses that have no real benefit to our state. I will support all sensible tax cuts for the middle class.
MORE CONNECTICUT JOBS
By ending job killing regulations and red tape, as well as reducing the tax burden on businesses, we will bring jobs back to Connecticut without giving corporate welfare to politically connected favorites.
SAFETY FOR YOUR FAMILY
Strict enforcement of existing laws can take violent criminals off the streets. Putting an end to so called “sanctuary cities” will stop places like New Haven from being a Criminal Haven. Putting police officers in schools will protect our children.
FIX STATE EMPLOYEE BENEFITS
For the past 40 years, politicians made promises to state unions that are impossible for Connecticut to keep. Workers accepted jobs expecting those benefits upon retirement. We need to find a middle ground that is both fair to state employees and fair to Connecticut taxpayers.
FIGHT THE OPIOD CRISIS
Opiods now kill more Americans every year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War. We need to address the root of the problem through education and intervention programs. People already in the grip of addiction should have ready access to treatment programs.
