- The Cost of Connecticut. “ConnecticutCOST!” Connecticut has $14.4 billion available to pay $82.1 billion worth of bills. ● The outcome is a $67.8 billion shortfall, which breaks down to a burden of $51,800 per taxpayer. (per Truth in Accounting) The result squeezes older residents burdened by the growing tax burden, prevents younger families from moving to Connecticut, and directs a growing portion of the State Government finances into paying for debt rather than services and repairs.
- Open Table of Conversation. Like it or not, the Connecticut public policy conversation has been guided to an unfair degree by entrenched politicians and labor unions. They deserve a place in the conversation, but so do the millions of residents currently left out of the decision making. These include small business people, families, the retired.
- Devotion to Norwalk, not to an entrenched Hartford establishment. A pledge to vote for your constituents, recognizing that every dollar the State spends in Hartford comes out of their wallets.
