2018 Issues Survey

The 2018 Legislative Session started in February and ends May 9th. During this time, the Assembly will face many tough choices - which is why it’s important for me to get your feedback about the most pressing issues facing you, your household and our community. I hope you will take a few minutes to complete this survey and help me better represent our district at the state capitol.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you or your family is in need of assistance or if you would like to share an opinion with me. It’s an honor to serve as your state representative and I look forward to hearing from you about ways we can improve Connecticut for all of us.

Circle one for each from 5 (high priority) to 1 (low priority)
Pay Equity: ensuring equal pay for equal work
Earned FMLA: at some point in our working lives, we will have to take time off to recover from an illness, take care of a sick family members, or welcome a new baby. Paid Family Leave acts like an insurance policy so we don’t lose our jobs when we take care of those who mean the most.
Protecting and Expanding the Citizen’s Election Program: Our state’s public campaign finance system helps level the playing field by keeping special interest money out of our elections.
Reproductive rights and women’s health care: Ensuring the Government does not have a say in the choices women make concerning their health.
Defending Our Community Colleges and providing 2-year college to all CT residents: Similar politics have been adopted in competing states, like RI and NY.
Net Neutrality: Creative ideas for new laws in Connecticut can protect an internet with content accessible for everyone, not just the highest bidder. Corporate schemes cannot be allowed to create a ‘fast lane’ online for those who are able to pay.
National Popular Vote: Adding Connecticut to the Nationwide compact with the goal of electing our President through a National popular vote.
Permanent Ban on Fracking Waste: Keeping fracking waste out of Connecticut for good.
