Candidates typically have key messages that they deliver to voters throughout their campaign. I have three. Here is the first one:
Simple Math – spend no more than you make
And this is pretty simple. How many of you reading this know what happens when you start to spend more than you are bringing in, when your income doesn’t meet your expenses?
I don’t know about you but the first thing I do is cut back. I make sure I’m covered for my family’s health, safety and welfare and then look to those purchases that I should save for before buying, or cut out all together. It’s worked very well for me throughout my entire life. This is the very lesson we try to teach our children - spend no more than you make.
Connecticut is not setting a very good example. Our State is on a spending spree and is about to hand the bill to our children, and their children.
We need to control state spending and balance our fiscal budget. Despite the largest tax increase in the State’s history this year’s budget has a deficit of millions of dollars. This is not what we were promised when “shared sacrifice” was asked of all of us.
This makes me mad. I pay my taxes, I contribute to my community and I balance my own budget. I deserve better from my State government.
I want you to send me to Hartford so that I can do what I can to put a stop to this. Yes, I’m one person but that’s how we begin to make the change.
