Yesterday was an amazing day for our campaign and we are off to a great start, but we have a long way to my birthday goal of $5,300 for my 53rd birthday!

I want all of you to know how committed I am to this race, so I have decided to put some more skin in the game. Between now and Friday, I will match every donation up to the $5,300!

As we roll into October we really would like to turn things up a bit. So, please click the link below to make a campaign contribution!

Thank you to all who donated!

This Friday, September 18th, I will be turning 53 years old!

In the 53 years, I've served our country, raised a family, become a business owner, and served my community in the Connecticut General Assembly. I've also been blessed with great people in my life!

The 50s are a fun age. You have gained a lot of great experience and you are still youthful enough to use it! That's one of the reason's I am excited to get back to the state legislature and work to make Connecticut more affordable!

Those of you who know me well know I love the work. So, here is my birthday wish - help me get back to the statehouse and make a difference!

My campaign decided not to take taxpayer money. So in the spirit of me turning 53, our campaign is seeking to raise $5,300 by this Friday, September 18th. Any contribution amount will help. Click on the link to help our campaign reach its goal.

Today was the first segment of the Newtown Bee’s “Friday Forums” series where my opponent and I had an opportunity to discuss some of the important issues facing our state.

While we agreed that non-profits need help in our state, we couldn’t be further apart on how to rebuild our economy.

We need to realize that taxing and spending our way out of this financial situation is not the answer. We must make difficult decisions to prioritize our spending and look at ways to cut costs. If we want to grow revenue, we must grow our economy.

Also, at the heart of the debate is the fact that he continues to sell himself as a moderate. This is the most disingenuous thing I have heard from a candidate in a while, and that’s saying a lot considering the bitter divisions on the national stage. The truth is he joined the Progressive Caucus in February 2019 and his voting record on tax increases, spending, and municipal mandates confirm he is supporting their agenda. Normally I am not much for labels, but I believe elected officials should be honest.

He also makes claims to be a member of the "Moderate Caucus" which exists in name only and was created by a handful of Democrats in 2015 who were fiscally conservative on the budget. Today, the caucus exists in name only and I would be hard-pressed to believe a progressive could be part of it.

My opponent says I am out of touch with the district and he represents all the people. I say he continues to put his political agenda over the wellbeing of our communities, which means he represents a small group in our community. At least he should tell us the truth.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 19 years since our country was attacked on 9/11. Today we should remember the victims of that tragic day and those that rushed in to save them. My prayers are still with their families and the scores of first responders who suffer from that awful day.

I am also reminded that we can rally in the worst of times and overcome anything when we work together.

High taxes have driven jobs and people out of Connecticut, leaving working middle class families to pick up the tab. In the session that begins in January, I will focus on making Connecticut affordable by prioritizing what we spend and without raising taxes. I will focus on reducing mandates on schools and municipalities, which will pave the way for property tax reform. I will fight to direct transportation funds where they belong so we can fix our roads without tolls. I am Dan Carter and I ask you to vote for me in this election. ... See MoreSee Less
