WEST HARTFORD – On Sunday The public was invited to the Emanuel Synagogue of West Hartford, to ask questions of the three leading candidates for governor questions about a myriad of Connecticut's issues.
Subjects- from legalizing recreational pot, to electronic toll revenue to repair state roads and bridges, both of which democrat Ned Lamont says he'll do.
"We need a governor who is going to be absolutely fearless when it comes to shaking up the old way of doing business and taking on the entrenched interests in Hartford and making the changes we need to get this state growing again."
Republican Bob Stefanowski says he would reduce taxes and regulations that drive out Connecticut businesses. He says he's get rid of the estate tax and reign in waste fund abuse saying,
"Whether your family whether you`re a business where they are government you cannot tax and spend your way into prosperity."
Oz Griebel (I) says "What I hear from people more often is not so much that their taxes are going up it`s their frustration on how those tax dollars are spent."
He promises to capitalize on Connecticut's unique geography that links economic powerhouses in Boston and New York and invest in transportation.
Griebel says, "We`re providing for probably the first time in the history of Connecticut a legitimate third choice on the ballot. You have a chance to take Connecticut back from the two party system that for 30 years has resulted in no net job growth increases in taxes and out migration."
Connecticut voters cast their ballots in about 4 weeks on November 6.
