New Ad Reminds Voters Only David Stemerman Has Introduced Detailed Plans to Save Connecticut
“Stemerman will cut taxes, cut spending, grow jobs, and take on the unions.”
STAMFORD CT – David Stemerman, a political outsider, self-made businessman and Republican Gubernatorial candidate, today released a new statewide ad that will run on both broadcast and cable TV and radio that distinguishes his campaign from the pack in terms of substance and willingness to face Connecticut’s biggest problems:
“As we enter the final days of the Republican primary campaign, it’s clear that David Stemerman is the only candidate in this race with a detailed plan to cut taxes, grow jobs, and take on the state labor unions” Stemerman Campaign Manager Patrick Sweeney said today. “We need a Governor with bold vision and specific ideas to Save Connecticut – and while the other candidates have been offering make believe, pie-in-the-sky plans, David’s been around the state offering real solutions to reverse years of failed leadership by the Hartford insiders. If voters are looking for an outsider and change-maker to shake up Hartford with real ideas to fix our state, only David Stemerman has the plan and the will to get it done for them.”
Dan Malloy has been a disaster for Connecticut.
Only businessman, outsider David Stemerman.
Will cut taxes for everyone.
Only David Stemerman will cut spending.
Only David Stemerman has a real plan to grow jobs.
Only David Stemerman has the guts to take on the unions
And Only David Stemerman has the spine to stand up for what is right
BACKGROUND: David and his wife have been proud to raise their five children in Connecticut where he started his own business, Conatus Capital, ten years ago, and built it from a single desk to a multi-billion dollar business. He understands what causes businesses to succeed and fail, what works and what doesn’t. And most importantly, he knows what it takes to grow jobs and wages, and has a track record of delivering results.
Stemerman has gone to the Capital to lay out an ambitious agenda to eliminate conflicts of interest that have rigged our elections and legislative process, and to give control of government back to the people. He has proposed a bold plan to save our pensions system from insolvencyand resolve the staggering liabilities that are jeopardizing our state’s future. And Stemerman has been recognized by the Hartford Courant as “alone among the candidates” – of either party – to lay out specific and credible plans to save Connecticut from a looming financial crisis. Stemerman’s plans will build on Connecticut’s former strengths to turn around the moving vans and grow our economy for families and job-creators.
He is also the only candidate in either party to provide a detailed plan to cut taxes for all residents and employers to make our state affordable and competitive so we can keep and attract jobs and families. Stemerman proposes cutting taxes by $3 billion a year, including reducing the state’s seven income tax brackets to three at 0%/4%/5%, eliminating the death, gift and entity taxes and cutting the corporate tax rate to 5%. His plan pays for these tax cuts by cost savings and eliminating special deals and exemptions in the tax code.
Lastly, Stemerman is also the only candidate in either party to propose a detailed plan to rebuild and upgrade Connecticut’s failing transportation infrastructure. He proposes attracting billions of dollars of private investment to upgrade Connecticut’s roads, trains and airports, including adding lanes to our major highways, getting the train from New York City to Stamford in 30 minutes, Bridgeport in 45 minutes and New Haven in 60 minutes and developing a major regional airport in Southern Connecticut.
Other candidates offer vague promises to balance the budget, cut taxes and spending and grow jobs. Only Stemerman proposes a credible plan that will deliver results for the people of Connecticut.
