All worthwhile endeavors start with asking yourself ‘Why’? The answer to ‘why’ am I running for the US Senate begins with a heartfelt belief that Connecticut is under siege by political self-interest, competing objectives and priorities that put ideology ahead of solutions. Six years of single party rule has decimated our tax base as businesses and citizens flee Connecticut for more reasonable, well run states - as close as Massachusetts and as far away as Florida or Texas.
Our Federal, all Democratic, delegation offers no help, ideas, or solutions because they are distracted with the “#resistance" and are too busy spreading hyperbolic messages of fear and hate to help fuel their activism and to advance partisan agendas and political ambitions.
What I will offer is a rich life experience as a coach, mentor, and a businessman with 20 years of experience in Silicon Valley. My style is practical, innovative and thoughtful - my character is grounded in respect for others and I value all reasonable opinions and perspectives. I believe that a great public servant must be pragmatic above ideological, they must, above all else, believe in Connecticut and the awesome potential of our citizenry, our inner cities, and our business communities.
I believe Connecticut should lead the nation in being the best place to live, to start a business and to raise a family. The path forward begins by putting Connecticut before our politics.
By running for US Senate, I plan to make these dreams a reality and I will put Connecticut first.
