My name is Tony Morrison. I am running as the Republican candidate for the Southington 81st House District in the election on November 8th .
I am running because we need to reverse the disastrous course set for us by legislation passed by the majority Democrat Party.
Our State used to be a model for others - recognized for low taxes, career opportunities, low crime and responsive State fiscal management.
Now we are among the highest taxed states in the country and yet among the worst in terms of services provided for that money. Businesses are re-locating from a highly taxed over-regulated state and we have difficulty attracting replacements. We are now dreading an upcoming recession, made even worse by the fact that we have still not recovered jobs lost in the last 2008 recession. And we are among the worst States in terms of fiscal management – utterly broke with an estimated $75 Billion of pension and healthcare benefits that we cannot afford to pay.
Connecticut urgently needs lawmakers that believe in an aspirational culture dedicated to providing all of us with the ability to succeed in a flourishing economy.
Lawmakers like myself will drive a new vision for the role of State Government; one focused on enabling our freedoms, not dictating how we should live.
My pledge to you if elected is to revitalize our economy, our State services and our quality of life.
