The single most pressing issue facing our state is _______, and this is what I intend to do about it: The $2.5 BILLION DOLLAR deficit. I am going to propose business friendly Legislation that will incentivize companies to invest in workforce development, create new jobs, which will lead to more people paying taxes and less of a tax burden on individual taxpayers.
That is exactly what the State of CT needs.

What are the critical differences between you and the other candidates seeking this post? Planning with foresight is critical as a State Representative.

When legislation is passed to increase your Taxes over and over again, you probably noticed how difficult it is to live in CT. Increasing taxes will only hurt the economy, and drive out businesses and residents from our state (as we have all noticed).

When rushed legislation is passed without consulting experts in their field (Police accountability bill), it threatens the safety of our community.

Planning with foresight is crucial as a State Rep because legislation effects people’s lives. In my full time work as a financial advisor, I’m tasked with creating long term strategic plans on a daily basis. As your State Representative, you will notice a more thoughtful approach being used to put our economy on track, decreasing debt, and lowering your taxes.

What accomplishments in your past would you cite as evidence you can handle this job?

– Approved $185 Million private investment project in the Town of Manchester to redevelop Broad Street
– Succeeded in having a Zero tax increase, Manchester’s first time in 10 years
– Proposed economic development in communities that need it most, while taking advantage of Opportunity Zones.
– Other Leadership skills and production results have come from my private sector experience, managing a team of advisors, client assets, and being VP of a bank.

Do you believe Connecticut needs reform when it comes to electric utility oversight? What steps, if any should be taken? I believe a serious conversation needs to be had with Eversource.

What steps should state government take to bolster economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic for local businesses? Streamline licensing processes, remove barriers for apprenticeship training requirements, incentivize employers for training/hiring new employees, and attract entrepreneurs to the state by restoring the Research & Development tax credit.

List other issues that define your campaign platform: Public safety is crucial to the community. I will defend, not Defund our public safety. The recent police accountability law presents very real threats to the community’s safety and that needs to change.

What else would you like voters to know about yourself and your positions? I’m very excited and eager to work hard and produce positive
