Subsidies in the wake of Record State Surplus.

September 30, 2022

Branford – Yesterday, Bob Stefanowski, Republican Candidate for Governor of Connecticut spent the day sharing his pro-business and pro-economy plan with several Chambers of Commerce and joining with law enforcement officers and active citizens to outline his plan to improve public safety

That same day, Governor Lamont’s office sent a release touting an insulting and embarrassingly small expansion of the state’s food assistance program.

Stefanowski pounced on the announcement stating, “While the governor sits on a $6 billion of money from taxpayers that he doesn’t need, his offer of $31 per month in food assistance to families struggling with food insecurity is an insult to the people of Connecticut.”

Our CT FIRST Plan (Fight Inflation and Reduce State Taxes) provides families with over $2,000 per year by repealing the tax Governor Lamont added on food, reducing the sales tax, and other measures to help residents make ends meet.”

“Growing up in New Haven, I know what it’s like to not be able to make a rent payment or struggle with grocery bills. Governor Lamont inherited hundreds of millions of dollars and clearly has no appreciation for how much people are struggling. I do. And I will help Connecticut residents get by,” said Stefanowski.
