Good Can Happen When We Focus on the Greater GoodFebruary 23, 2022
In a recent op-ed, House Majority Leader Jason Rojas shares his thoughts and goals for the 2022 legislative session.
From the work still needed to help Connecticut weather the COVID-19 pandemic to continuing economic growth and adopting policies to improve the quality of life for everyone in our state, Rojas says there is great opportunity and optimism at the Capitol.
"Even though we are beating back COVID, there’s still so much work to do as the pandemic continues to impact families, schools and businesses directly and indirectly. In addition, we need to continue Connecticut’s rebound by investing in long-term growth strategies including supporting Connecticut’s workers and local businesses," Rojas writes.
Though acknowledging there will always be differing perspectives, which is healthy for our democracy, Rojas believes legislative leaders from both parties will be able to work together for the greater good.
"At the State Capitol in a chamber where members have ideologies that span the political spectrum, all these issues are sure to result in disagreements and differences of opinions. We must resist the urge to play to partisan bases and instead work to bridge our divides and do the right thing for the great people of Connecticut. I’m proud that we have leaders on both sides of the aisle who are willing and committed to collaborating and negotiating."
