Dear Neighbor, We live in turbulent times. Now more than ever, we need calm, thoughtful leadership that brings people together to solve problems.
Connecticut remains in an economic crisis. Depressed property values, a stagnant economy, crushing taxes, a hostile business environment, over $100 billion unfunded pension liabilities, and billion dollar budget deficits. Now the COVID-19 crisis has made all of these worse.
Let’s Save Connecticut! You can count on me. I respectfully as for your vote.
