The Bethel Police have some important information for the community.
This post also underscores the importance of changing the police pursuit policies my opponent created last year that have resulted in more stolen cars in our area. Emboldened criminals know they can't be chased and, due to the police accountability bill, in most cases they can't be searched.
We must allow officers reasonable discretion in who they can pursue and give them the best training possible to help them in their decisions. ... See MoreSee Less
Kudos to the Danbury Newstimes for their article on the 2nd district race.
Although, I am troubled by my opponent's responses.
First, the police accountability bill crippled police recruiting, especially among minorities. We have already seen this across the state. Just ask a cop.
Second, he says he supports pay raises for police. A State Rep has no control over pay raises in our communities and to assume pay is the issue for police is missing the point and disrespectful to police officers. They are advocating for our safety, not asking for money.
Finally, he claims he consulted police chiefs for the bill. What he didn't say is our chiefs were against it.
This is why we need experience in Hartford at this pivotal time. We can't afford putting politics above common sense or public safety.
Numerous police groups and unions have endorsed me and are ready to work with me to ensure accountability without sacrificing safety or passing on exorbitant costs to our communities that raise our property taxes.
Here are 800 jobs not coming to Connecticut solely because our state isn't affordable.
We can make Connecticut affordable if we elect the right people.
In 2017 and 2018 Republicans and Democrats were close in numbers in Hartford. There were significant Republican contributions to the budget process that led to the healthy rainy day fund we have today. 2017 is proof we can get more done when political parties work together. #endlonepartyrule

Make no mistake, zoning and school regionalization are on the ballot!
Bills were introduced in 2019 and again this spring that would reduce the influence parents have over their schools and residents have over their communities. The effort to regionalize is gaining momentum.
There is currently a lawsuit against the town of Woodbridge, the Mayor of New Haven is calling for a "suburb" tax, and the Desegregate CT is taking aim at towns like Bethel and Redding.
Unlike my opponent, when I return to Hartford, I will work to maintain local decision-making over our schools and zoning.
