First I want to thank everyone who participated and volunteered during campaign season this year. Results from this year didn’t go in our favor completely on a local level but we held firm State wide and were able to re-elect real good people to represent us in Hartford and Washington D.C. Our State Senator Gayle Slossberg and State Representative Kim Rose I know will represent Milford dutifully. It is unfortunate that our State Reps James Maroney and Paul Davis won’t be joining the legislature next year but I know they will remain close to their communities and continue to work on behalf of their neighbors, with a legislative title or not.

To view the full candidate profile on State Representative James Maroney of the 119th House District please click on this link to be redirected to the Milford Mirror.
James Maroney has been serving as the 119th’s State Representative since 2012. Prior to his election James served on the Milford Board of Education from Milford’s 1st District. I came to know James during his first run for the BOE and I’m proud to have him as a member of the Milford delegation. He is one of the most sincere and friendliest people I know. While I can’t personally cast my vote for James during the November 4th election I hope that the constituents inthe 119th will honor their vote for James Maroney in this upcoming election.
I am privileged to represent Milford and Orange, and I’ve worked hard to justify the trust that was placed in me. Over the last several months I have reintroduced myself to constituents and listened to their concerns. Jobs, the economy, quality education, and support for our seniors are concerns that everyone seems to share. Being a small business owner, spending my lifetime here, and graduating from Yale have prepared me to address these issues…
We need to stop over regulating businesses. Connecticut must be more business freindly. We started on that path last session. Over 1,000 pages of regulations were eliminated and more services are being provided online.
We need to do more, but there are few clear or easy answers. We know we can’t continue to deliver programs in the same way and expect different results. Last session I introduced legislation called “Pay For Success.” It will require more rigorous data tracking of preventative social programs, and only pay for the programs that are successful. These programs are funded by foundations and other private sources. The state only pays if they generate a savings for Connecticut. This is an innovative new way of delivering services that will help put our state back on top.

The New Haven Register published a recent article covering the 14th Senatorial district race. In the article it covers State Senator Gayle Slossberg’s re-election campaign and included tid-bits on her opponent, “a junior at Central Connecticut State University who isn’t even old enough to legally drink alcohol“.

Slossberg said, “We were able to save thousands of jobs,” in an agreement with United Technologies/Sikorsky, as well as 95 supplier businesses and their employees. Slossberg said she’s “worked hard” with both large and small employers to “help them survive and thrive.”
“I’m a fiscal conservative and voted against spending and tax increases,” for the middle class, seniors and veterans, Slossberg said.
Even though she holds many Senate leadership positions, Slossberg still finds time to make house calls in some cases in order to help a constituent. Recently, she planned to bring a public health expert to the home of a local senior who needs to reassess health insurance choices to make ends meet.
“I want to make sure people can afford to live in our community,” she said.
Among Slossberg’s leadership roles are Senate Chairwoman of the Human Services Committee, focused on improving mental health services, and vice-chairwoman of the Veterans Affair Committee. Veterans have always been a group close to Slossberg’s heart.
“These are the people who answered the call,” and left home and family to protect our freedoms, she said. “We owe everything to them when they come home.”
