PAUL EDWARDS

STATE REPRESENTATIVE NEW BRITAIN
AN INDEPENDENT LEADER, FIGHTING FOR NEW BRITAIN

The people of New Britain deserve a voice at the State Capitol who will actually show up and represent their interests.

There is so much good happening in New Britain these days. Our downtown is being transformed, our schools are being rebuilt, and we are once again feeling the pride of what it means to be from 'Hard Hittin.' But there is still much to do.

Education is my top priority and I will make improving New Britain's schools my mission at the Capitol. I'll be an independent leader - fighting for New Britain.

Paul's Plan

Independent Leadership Means Strong Schools

  • Leverage additional state investment to enhance the resources available to students and teachers throughout the school district
  • Work in partnership with the Mayor and Common Council to continue our aggressive school facility construction program
  • Set aggressive, but realistic goals - then hold administrators and faculty accountable for reaching them

Independent Leadership Means Safe Streets

  • Support policies that protect victim rights, and allow police to do their jobs while holding them accountable for their actions
  • Address the rising rate of crime - particularly juvenile crime - through early intervention, expanded diversionary opportunities and, where necessary, stiffer penalties

Independent Leadership Means An Affordable Connecticut

  • Protect our seniors and those on fixed incomes by repealing the pension tax (retirement penalty) and working with our municipal leaders to deliver REAL property tax relief
  • Only support balanced budgets that treat New Britain fairly and make it easier to live and work here
