Another terrific candidate forum in the Quiet Corner last night. Thanks to the Thompson Democrats for hosting!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Great crowd at last night's Ellington, CT Democratic Town Committee meeting! Thanks for the opportunity to talk about my grassroots campaign promoting service over politics and my plan to turn around CT's economy.
It was great talking to the Enfield Democrats about my plan to turn around CT's economy!
Spent a great evening speaking with Somers Democrats and answering questions about my plan to solve our budget crisis and get Connecticut back on track. Thanks to everyone who joined us!
Last night I had a great conversation with the Darien Democratic Town Committee about fixing Connecticut's economy and making sure that we reverse the trend of businesses leaving the state!
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.
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.
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.
