Imagine getting a $1000 fine from the state with no way to appeal!

My opponent recently announced his support for a bill that would result in frivolous fines for businesses in Connecticut.

This legislation is supposed to help unemployed people get jobs by not allowing their status as unemployed to be used against them – overall a good idea, especially after Covid-19.

The bill allows the state to fine a business $500 to $1000 every time someone makes a complaint against the business for allegedly not hiring them because they were unemployed. The worst part is, there is no notice to the business, no hearing, and no appeal! The bill also allows the Attorney General to sue the business if the business does not pay the fines. The only recourse for a business would be to take the state to the superior court to prove their innocence.

Imagine being a business owner and having fines levied against you by the state based on an unsubstantiated complaint and having no means to defend yourself or appeal the decision!

Along with my opponent’s tax increases on businesses, supporting this bill demonstrates that my opponent's policies are a real threat to every business in Connecticut.

If we want to make Connecticut affordable, we can’t allow my opponent to bring back this bill next year! Please help me stop him with your vote and contribution to my campaign.

Please forward this to every business owner you know!

Sticky fingers update:

The man caught on video tampering with our campaign sign came by and apologized. We also had an opportunity to discuss our differences.

I deleted the post with the video. My intention is not to cause further embarrassment to the individual. I respect him for apologizing and being willing to speak with me face to face.

We must not forget we are all Americans. One of our greatest strengths is our diversity, which is why principles like freedom of speech are so important. Regardless of how big or small a group may be, we must allow them to express their point of view in a manner that respects others.

This rash of stolen cars in towns like Bethel has to stop.

These thefts are a direct result of juveniles who are emboldened by the fact police officers are not allowed to pursue them due to a law passed by Rep. Allie-Brennan last year, against the advice of local law enforcement. Even if they are caught, there are no consequences.

We need to reduce juvenile arrests, but not enforcing the law is insane.***PUBLIC SAFETY ALERT***

Beginning at 0750 am there have been multiple motor vehicles stolen from residences and business parking lots in Bethel and Newtown. Please ensure that your motor vehicles are locked and that any key fobs are within a safe distance from your vehicles.

Should you have video surveillance footage of any potentially related activity, or should you observe any suspicious activity/persons, please contact the Bethel Police Department and do not confront any individuals.
