My business experience is desperately needed in Hartford, especially at this time of profound economic uncertainty. I’m excited to bring my extensive professional and political experience to Hartford. It’s time Branford citizens have a voice in Hartford.
LIST OF ISSUES
Protect Branford’s Rainy Day Fund
Hartford politicians have made no qualms about the way they overspend and mismanage our state. If Hartford has its way, Branford will be forced to compensate for the bailouts of irresponsible neighboring towns and cities -putting our rainy-day fund at risk. In short, they want to penalize Branford for being fiscally responsible.
Support Our Police and First Responders
The first duty of government is to keep our communities safe. The “Defund the Police Movement” is dangerous
and puts us and our families at risk. Undermining Police Officers ability to make critical split-second decisions can mean the difference between life and death. Our citizens deserve a police force that can provide us with security and peace of mind.
Prevent Regionalization of School Systems
Hartford wants to merge the Branford school system with neighboring towns, and my opponent has voted to begin a process to regionalize school systems. To do so would degrade the quality of our children’s education. Connecticut has the best education systems in the country, and a key factor that has allowed us to flourish is our founding principle of local control. I will unequivocally reject any legislation that would strip control from the towns or cause parents to lose their say on how their children will be educated.
