Deteriorating infrastructure is a national crisis and, unfortunately, Connecticut is no exception to that alarming trend. Whenever I get on I-84, I prepare for the worst. There is no reason we should spend so much time sitting in unbearable traffic just to get from point A to point B, especially when heading to work. We need efficient and effective transportation improvements.
- I will prioritize public transportation. Seniors depend on it, young people depend on it, our commuters depend on it, and it’s our best chance of dealing with the congestion problems that will only get worse.
- I will advocate for critical improvements to the Danbury Branch Line, to respond to commuters’ current needs and future demands.
- I will support a “lockbox” to ensure transportation funds are not diverted for other purposes.
