TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE

TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE

To summarize my plan to improve our infrastructure, we should leverage low-cost Federal transportation funding, adopt structural spending reforms, including using the Special Transportation Fund as it was originally intended, improve efficiency at the CT Department of Transportation, and prioritize projects to include their economic return. 

Taxes, Jobs and the Economy

Much of Connecticut’s infrastructure is beyond its intended life and in need of repair or replacement. Investing in infrastructure will foster opportunities for our economy to grow and approve the quality of life of our citizens. My main priority is rail between New Haven and New York City and our highways.  We need to prioritize infrastructure in Fairfield County as we are the economic engine for the entire state. For every dollar Fairfield sends to Hartford, we get pennies back. Instead of just being the pocketbook for the rest of the state, I will advocate that we receive our proper share of funding so we are given the tools to succeed as a region. Before we even consider tolls, we need to adopt structural spending reforms first. Otherwise, we will just enable the majority party that controls both the Legislature and the Governorship to continue to tax and spend, raid the state’s Transportation Fund and use it for non-transportation purposes.  

To summarize my plan to improve our infrastructure, we should leverage low-cost Federal transportation funding, adopt structural spending reforms, including using the Special Transportation Fund as it was originally intended, improve efficiency at the CT Department of Transportation, and prioritize projects to include their economic return.
