2023 Constituent Survey

I need to know what you are most concerned about, so I have sent you this annual survey. Understanding your priorities and thoughts are important to me as I make decisions on the many proposals introduced this year.

First, the economic news has been very good. There are now more job openings than there are people trying to fill them. That means salaries have risen, and many of you and our neighbors have better incomes. It also means we can cut taxes again, as we did by $700 million last term. But which ones? That is one of the questions I am asking.

Second, I share the alarm of the increasing spread of gun violence. I have fought since I was first elected to make our families, our homes, our streets, our city, and our state safe. I have joined in seeking better anti-violence bills.

As always, I am here to listen and help. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have a particular concern, or if you need help with a state agency.

What concerns you and your family the most?

Please check all that apply.

Tax Credits

The Connecticut Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable state income tax for low income working individuals and families. For example, a married family with two children currently receive a tax credit of up to $1,880. Under the new budget that same family will receive a state tax credit of up to $2,465 providing them with an additional $585. Would this help your family?


The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is a tax credit for single or married workers earning low or moderate incomes who have children under age 17. Workers who qualify for the CTC and file a federal tax return can receive a credit of up to $2,000 per child. Would this help your family?


The property tax credit against the personal income tax depends on the amount of property tax due and paid and the taxpayer’s income. Would increasing the tax credit from $300 to $650 help you?

Property tax credit

This session I’ve proposed decreasing the sales tax from 6.35% to 6%. Would you support my bill to decrease the sales tax?
