"I asked during the public hearing, Would you exempt a company that offers #FMLA ? The answer: No. Is the state (i.e., state employees) exempt? The answer: Yes. If the program is so good, then why is the State of #Connecticut exempting itself?" - @joepolletta #CTPolitics
Under #Connecticut Dems S.B. 01, you will be mandated to pay a new payroll tax which is 0.5% of your salary. "I've received a number of emails from constituents, who are just fed up, with the policy of this state that considers them to be a bank." - @SampsonForCT #CTPolitics
Under #Connecticut Dems S.B. 01, you will be mandated to pay a new payroll tax which is 0.5% of your salary. "Is there anyway to opt-out...if you are an employee and not participate in this program?"-@SampsonForCT "As I read the bill, no." - Rep. Rojas #CTPolitics
#Connecticut #Democrats want you to pay a new payroll tax. Under S.B 01, you will be forced to pay 0.5% of your salary which will go into a fund, managed by the same people that destroyed the Special Transportation Fund. Union members will initially not have to contribute, while non-union residents will. If the fund goes bankrupt, you don't get a refund. The money then becomes property of the state. #fmla #ctpolitics

Great news for #CT residents, as H.B. 5521 codifies the ACA’s pre-existing protections into State law. Should anything undermine the ACA at the federal level, CT residents remain protected. Thank you to our State Rep @cristinmccarthyvahey for co-introducing this important legislation and to all the @cthousedems for your efforts to bring more affordable, accessible #healthcare to all! Families across the state will breathe a sigh of relief once this bill is enacted. #CTPolitics

Neighbors Helping Neighbors! What else would three friends be doing on a beautiful Spring afternoon? Special thanks to Jean Saliter and Digby Brown for helping pick up the litter on Boinay Hill in North Canaan this afternoon. Jean had reached out to me over the weekend and mentioned that the area could use a little TLC. Last year, Sen. Craig Miner and I had helped her pick up the litter on Taconic Road in Salisbury and so now she’s returned the favor. Jean is the President of the Tri-State Chamber of Commerce and Digby is the Director of the Salisbury Winter Sports Association. Three 55 gallon garbage bags later we were finished. Every little bit helps! . . . ⚠️ DOUBLE TAP 🚹 TAG 🆘 DM 🔱 FOLLOW 🖥 REPOST #connecticut #leadbyexample #ctpolitics #leadership #inspire #faith #strength #honor #courage #lifecoach #morningmotivation #love #politics #ctgop #gop #firefighting #emergencymanagement #weathergeek #stormchaser #ems #thinblueline #supportourtroops #army #marines #navy #airforce #coastguard #combatveteran
5 years ago today I was sworn in as Rep. Zawistowski of the 61st after a special election the previous week. It is truly an honor to represent the people of Suffield, East Granby & Windsor.

Congratulations, Bullet! It was an immense honor to join the men and women of the Lakeville Hose Company at their annual Awards banquet this evening. The star of the night was of course, the legendary Robert “Bullet” Sherwood. Bullet was recognized tonight for his 48 years of active service with a beautifully engraved Fireman’s Axe. Firefighters, family members, and friends all gathered to celebrate this moment and wish him well. He has undoubtedly been a pillar of this community for so many years. If you’ve ever attempted to pass by an accident scene in Salisbury or even tried to park at the annual Ski Jumps, you always knew when Bullet was giving you directions. ⚠️ DOUBLE TAP 🚹 TAG 🆘 DM 🔱 FOLLOW 🖥 REPOST #connecticut #leadbyexample #ctpolitics #leadership #inspire #faith #strength #honor #courage #lifecoach #morningmotivation #love #politics #ctgop #gop #firefighting #emergencymanagement #weathergeek #stormchaser #ems #thinblueline #supportourtroops #army #marines #navy #airforce #coastguard #combatveteran
Great turnout & even better public reception for #NoTollsCT rally on Windsor Green today, lots of horn honking, friendly waves & thumbs up.

If you live in #Connecticut and you don't want a new wall at our nation's southern border, then you shouldn't want tolls throughout this state. Check out the new article at the @QOTDCT @WordpressDotCom page - 'link in bio', as we say!

User Fee? Tax? The bottom-line is you're left with less money after it's diverted out of your pocket. Don't let @CTDems call plays you can't afford 860-240-8500. Let #Connecticut #Democrats know how you feel about paying thousands of dollars in new taxes and tolls. #CTPolitics

Last night I was sworn in as a Member of the Danbury Board of Education. I can’t express how honored I am to be able to serve the students and teachers of Danbury. I’m joining the board at an extremely difficult time, where funding and classroom space are becoming very hard to come by. I will work tirelessly to ensure that our students and teachers are receiving the resources and support they deserve. Thank you to all that supported me along the way. I can’t wait to get to work! #CTpolitics #Danbury

Nonprofit Advocacy Day in Hartford was an opportunity for our individuals and staff to advocate for themselves and the essential and life-changing services The Kennedy Center provides. Special thanks to @tonyhwangct for helping our individuals tell their stories and have fun doing it. Andrea was just one of many excited to share her perspective with Sen. Hwang, who went the extra mile to reserve a room for our group. We’re grateful to him and all the legislators who made time for us today. @ctsenategop . . . #selfadvcacy #weareessential #protectessentialservices #ctbudget #ctpolitics #tkc #thekennedycenterinc #iamessential
Tamika Ferguson can only communicate with her wife, Wayzaro Walton over the phone. On Tuesday morning, she gave Walton some good news -- she’d been granted a temporary stay of deportation. . Walton’s being held in Boston and federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, agents won’t release her from their custody. Walton’s wife, attorney, and Connecticut’s Attorney General demanded she be returned to her family at a news conference in Hartford. Ferguson says the detention has been difficult for her and the couple’s 15 year old daughter. . “Me and my daughter miss her very much," said Ferguson. "We need her home mentally, financially, emotionally, and physically.” . Walton came to the United States from the United Kingdom when she was four. Her attorney says that misdemeanor larceny convictions led to Walton losing her permanent resident status in 2012. . Those convictions were officially expunged by a state pardoning board shortly after  Walton was picked up by ICE. … 📷: @frankiegrazie6#immigration #photojournalism #ctpolitics

If Connecticut is going to create a smarter justice system, we all need more information about what prosecutors are doing. New polling shows the majority of Connecticut voters support a bill to increase transparency about prosecutors’ decisions. Connecticut voters recognize that with prosecutors’ enormous power comes a responsibility for prosecutors to be transparent with the public. It’s time for the legislature to pass S.B. 880, An Act to Increase Fairness and Transparency in the Criminal Justice System. . . . . #SmartJustice #aclu #acluct #ctpolitics #ctleg #cjreform #endmassincarceration
