Over the last year and a half, I have forged strong relationships with Connecticut’s government officials in Hartford. These connections have enabled me to work effectively to help Greenwich’s residents and businesses negotiate the complexities involved in applying for unemployment insurance and small business administration loans during the COVID-19 pandemic. I am able to communicate residents’ ideas, concerns and questions directly to relevant state officials. Being a member of the majority party provides me with direct access and a receptive ear.
Going forward, I will continue to support gun control and environmental protection legislation. My work to protect vulnerable residents from unscrupulous third party providers of electricity has already born fruit. As Vice Chair of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee, I am putting my background in finance and international markets to continue to develop a program of tax credits to rebuild our inner cities and restore economic vitality. I voted against last year’s budget due to its economic overreach in certain areas. Nonetheless, I was part of the conversation as a member of the majority party.
Now more than ever our state budget will need to reflect our new reality. I will continue to protect your wallets and ensure that your tax dollars are spent effectively.
