DEMOCRAT

FOR STATE SENATE IN THE 34TH DISTRICT

The Platform

Working families

In order for business to thrive, they need not only an educated workforce, but a community which can afford to buy goods and services.  We need to raise the minimum wage, protect collective bargaining, bring the prevailing wage threshold to dollar zero, and ensure that contract obligations are met. When our working class thrives, business and industry follow.

Education

From preschool to college, quality education has to be affordable without debt, and available to everyone regardless of zip code or financial means.


Education equals hope. Education is the path out of the vicious circle of poverty.  Education and financial opportunity will reduce crime and violence.

We need to get Connecticut back on target!

We won't get out of the economic rut until we establish a fair tax code and open new means of revenue.  That goes hand-in-hand with economic equality across races and genders.


Working class families are maxxed out.  We can even up our tax code though, including a 19% surcharge on investment management services, just like MA, NY, NJ, & PA have.  We've already cut government agencies to the point that they're not providing services anymore. In order to not raise taxes and not cut necessary services, we need to increase the tax base: new business, new working residents, improved city centers. That's going to take cooperation.

I'll listen to you

Government is designed to be by and for the people. But it hasn't been functioning that way, with petty partisanship getting in the way of service to the residents of this state. Help me get the legislature refocused on what's best for us.
