This is a campaign for Wethersfield's future, for the people of our great town. It has never been clearer that we need experienced, trusted leadership we can depend on in Hartford. Paul is building a grassroots effort to ensure the next generation has even greater opportunity than we did.
Paul served as the Mayor of Wethersfield, CT with honor and distinction.
He is running for State Representative to bring new energy and experience to the Capitol.
He will focus on the big issues like healthcare, jobs, women's rights, and ensuring that today's youth have greater opportunities.
UNIVERSAL PRE-K EDUCATION
This decades-long Democratic goal must become a reality. Universal Pre-K is critical to eliminating longstanding inequities in public education and addressing the learning gap.
A CT GREEN NEW DEAL
7 states have 100% renewable energy requirements by 2040 or 2045. It’s time Connecticut joined them. We will enact a Green New Deal here and make this transition a top priority.
A 4-DAY WORK WEEK
Productivity, mental health, and quality of life all increase with a 4-day work week. We can begin to transition immediately; the current crisis has shown how much can be done remotely.
CONNECT WETHERSFIELD TO THE RIVER
A first step is to work with Hartford and the MDC to relocate the “burn plant.” We have a plan to do that, and we will then begin long-term work toward re-connecting us to the river.
We need a standing Office of Pandemic Preparation to face our next crisis that focuses on testing, continuity of resources and services, and strategies for selective isolation.
With 350,000 residents without insurance right now, it has never been more clear that we need to transition to universal healthcare. If we can’t do it nationally, we can do it regionally.
COLLEGE & TECHNICAL SCHOOLS
We will enact college affordability measures for state schools so today's graduates aren’t saddled with debt for decades and heavily invest in our technical schools to create the best workforce in America.
With Roe v. Wade in the balance, we must protect reproductive rights at the state level, eliminate the gender wage gap through tough legislation, and increase equal economic opportunity.
“Paul Montinieri has been an incredible partner for our schools, and I am proud to endorse him for State Representative.”
