Encouraging and supporting small and medium size businesses in Connecticut is key to launching our State on an upward trajectory

Great breakfast at New Britain Diner this morning! Thanks TJ!

Encouraging and supporting small and medium size businesses in Connecticut is key to launching our State on an upward trajectory. We can solve our economic crisis with collaborative, results-driven leadership that focuses on service over politics.

I’m looking forward to taking some time off the campaign trail tonight when I will be dancing in Prospect to support House of Heroes Connecticut.

Connecticut needs to be an attractive place to do business

thumbnail_(blog)Connolly.png

This is why our next governor needs to be laser-focused on our economy. Connecticut needs to be an attractive place to do business. That's why I’ll be in constant contact with large and small employers—and their workers—at all times, not just when they threaten to leave.

I had the privilege of speaking to labor leaders of the Painters & Allied Trades District Council 11 about my plan to put Connecticut back to work and create more and better-paying jobs. Afterwards, I also toured their apprenticeship training center where they train the next generation of trades workers.

Keeping the “Community” in Community College

thumbnail_(blog)Connolly.png

Rising costs and tough budgets are real concerns, but we have to be sensitive to the feel and identity of each campus. Community colleges have worked hard to build relationships with local employers and students. They know who’s hiring. They design courses and schedules to fit their students’ needs. We need to make sure that when we cut costs, we do so in a way that keeps the “community” in community college.
