Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Connecticut is growing more unaffordable by the day. An economic report released this week revealed that consumer prices in May went up 8.6%, a new 40-year high. The Core Consumer Price Index (CPI), which excludes food and energy, also soared to over 6%. As inflation surges, my Republican colleagues and I are fighting for additional relief. As prices rise, so do your taxes paid on necessities like energy, food, goods & services. These inflation-driven revenues should be returned to the taxpayers.
Last week, I joined my colleagues to call for a special session to adopt nearly $750 million in additional relief for Connecticut residents, including tax cuts and energy assistance to ease the burden on working- and middle- class residents.
Join us as we host a Rally for An Affordable Connecticut in East Lyme on Friday, June 24, 2022 from 5:00pm – 6:00pm at Flanders Four Corners.
