I’ve worked hard on behalf of you and your family. I’m especially proud of the work I contributed — as the highest-ranking House Republican, on the budget committee. Last year was historic and my efforts contributed to the Republican caucus of the Appropriations Committee in delivering a record number of structural changes and no-tax increase state budget proposals, on time. Even though in the minority, I was successful in helping to pass a long-overdue Constitutional Spending Cap, plus a Volatility Cap (which enabled us to restore hundreds of million to our depleted Rainy Day Fund), along with a new way to fund our State Parks and a renewed investment in the critical Care4Kids program that supports working parents. However, our work is not finished.And it is more important than ever to enact fiscally prudent and common sense policies throughout Connecticut’s state government.
These accomplishments, and the ongoing support I receive from across the 33rd District, make the continued hard work worthwhile. Most importantly, this support comes from Republican, Democratic, Unaffiliated and Independent voters. Together we have made a positive impact and I am proud of those achievements. I keep my promises. I will go through the state budget like it was my own. I will support pro-business measures to grow jobs. I will fight for local education dollars. I will make our State Parks a priority.I will work tirelessly to reduce the stigma of opioid addiction. I will support positive structural changes in the state budget. I will communicate constantly. And since you entrusted me with your support, I have upheld my commitment to the House 34th District I serve and pledge to do the same in the Senate 33rd District.
Public service is important. It is one important way to improve the lives of those around us. Friends and constituents reach out every day — whether at the pharmacy, the gas station or on social media – to share that they support my efforts. I believe I can make a difference, with your continued support.
I look forward to sharing the details of my upcoming campaign, which will launch in earnest after this session is complete in May.
