08 Jun Summer Campaign Kickoff
The 2018 legislative session is now behind us. A bipartisan budget was passed that reflects the difficult realities facing Connecticut. This budget begins to address our future in a more realistic and balanced fashion. We need to stay this course, now more than ever.
My attention is now focused on my campaign to serve the twelve towns of the 33rd district as your State Senator. I have been taking time to meet individuals and businesses in the southern portion of the district, including Essex, Clinton, Westbrook and Old Saybrook (Shout out to Liv’s Shack and their killer lobster rolls!).
This was my sixth legislative session as State Representative for the 34th District. I’m hopeful that we will continue to bring forward fiscally conservative budget-balancing efforts in the next session and beyond. We cannot revert to the business as usual mindset that has plagued Hartford for decades.
As we transition from spring to summer, my attention is naturally shifting to my campaign to serve the 12 towns of the 33rd Senate District. Here’s a recap of recent activities:
Over the last few weeks I made a point to meet with individuals and businesses in the southern portion of the district, including Essex, Clinton, Westbrook and Old Saybrook. In addition, I have also met with voters at budget referendums in East Hampton, Old Saybrook, Clinton and Portland.
The expressed voter concerns — which I share —center on controlling the cost of living and making our state more competitive. I was pleased to hear strong support for my work towards balancing our state budget, reducing wasteful spending and fighting against unnecessary tax increases.
I also visited with the great folks at Petzold’s Marine Center in Portland and joined State Rep. Christie Carpino during office hours at Quarry Ridge Golf Course. Key topics included cutting government red tape and resisting the effort to place tolls on our state highways. I rounded out this tour by highlighting the Airline Trail system with events in Colchester and East Hampton.
Summer is just around the corner. I cannot wait to see you in our beautiful district!
