In a recent poll of CEOs, Connecticut was ranked as the 6th worst state for jobs, down from last year’s rank of 7th. This decline will continue until we stop running businesses out of the state with excessive taxes, regulations and poor fiscal management.
“Lower taxes and realistic regulations that don’t send businesses elsewhere. Connecticut is at the bottom of the list,” said one CEO polled. “Connecticut is the worst, poor leadership,” said another.
These quotations are indicative of an anti-business culture that has resulted in a sluggish economy, an unemployment rate above the national average, and persistent budget deficits that have prevented a meaningful economic rebound.

Please know that I’m doing my best to fight for businesses and jobs here in Connecticut. We need a vibrant and diverse economy to get our state back on the track to prosperity; to do that, we must stop treating business like the enemy.
