Issue Position: Its Time to Clean Things up For the People

Jan. 1, 2018

Stamford lacks sufficient opportunities for affordable housing, putting owning and renting out of reach for many. We must promote affordable housing opportunities to keep our kids, young adults and seniors here in Stamford. Support raising the state minimum wage to $15 per hour to alleviate economic stress on individuals, increase workers' purchasing power, and stimulate economic growth that benefits small businesses. The state of Connecticut consistently shortchanges our public schools and this needs to stop. Our state has the duty to fund every child without regard to race, origin, economic status, or special needs. We must end the unnecessary incarceration of our neighbors and stop the waste of taxpayer dollars caused by our current marijuana prohibition laws. We need to put commuters first by increasing parking at the train station and keeping it close to the tracks.

Issue Position: Its Time to Clean Up Our Environment

Fight for the state funding needed to clean up our waterfront and restore our neglected parks and marinas. Promote innovative sources and methods for the distribution of truly clean, renewable energy - which will liberate us from the monopolistic stranglehold of utility companies. Sponsor legislation that genuinely gives "power" to the people by allowing municipalities, entities, and individuals to become energy independent - this is currently restricted by state law. Separate the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) back into two distinct entities in order to prioritize environmental protection and public health. Lead the charge to promote the ethical treatment of animals because all living beings deserve to be treated with respect and compassion.

Issue Position: It's Time to Clean Up Our Government

Jan. 1, 2018

David is the only true independent voice, because he is not beholden to party or special interests that often dominate the political discussion. Working people and seniors need tax relief. He will fight to eliminate the treatment and excessive tax breaks given to corporate special interests and developers. As a tireless grassroots activist, David will always do what's best for the people and the environment even when it is unpopular in Hartford. He believes in giving everyone the opportunity to run for office, not just the wealthy and well connected. He will defend and strengthen Connecticut's groundbreaking program that publicly funds campaigns.
