Winter has come! I hope you and your family are staying safe and warm!
In Connecticut, when we get a major snowstorm, all of the necessary state leaders gather together in the Armory in Hartford and put a laser focus on getting our state through the storm. Connecticut’s economic crisis requires the same laser focus. This is our storm.
I am the only candidate exploring a run for Governor who has proposed an economic operations center that will treat our current economic issues like the crises that they are. In order to meet our fiscal challenges head on and put our State an upward trajectory of economic growth and prosperity, we need a leader who will bring everyone to the table to turn our economy around.
This means including the business community and labor. It means making sure that our cities, suburbs, and smaller towns are represented. We also need to make sure that women and minorities are included in the conversation to ensure that we restore Connecticut opportunity for everyone, no matter who you are.
It’s time we fight our economic crisis with the same all-hands-on-deck response that we use for snow storms!
