I want to ensure that Westport continues to remain a highly sought after and desirable place for all of us to call home. My vision is to Protect Westport from the bad decisions that are being made on a daily basis in Hartford.

We can’t solve the problems with the same people that made the problems. The impact of a mass exodus of business and people is seeping into our idyllic town and change can’t come fast enough.

I am Greg Kraut and I will protect Westport!

 

Meet Greg

We love living in CT and raising our two sons here. My unwavering mission is to ensure that CT continues to remain a highly sought after and desirable place for all of us to call home. Unfortunately the state’s financial crisis has exponentially increased my concern for our future. We need to have a stable and successful state, so all of our towns can properly grow. The good news is that the state is salvageable. Ironically, we are now in the fortunate position for a complete turn-around by utilizing the best practices of other states and leaving the worst practices behind.

Why this plan?

Most like to talk conceptually or with marketing jargon, its time to change the way we are approaching govt. We have tried to tax our way out for the last 25 years, we should now try something different. We need spending discipline and pro-growth reforms. These are always the best formula for reviving states and their budgets. We developed a three-phase plan to immediately generate at least $1B in non-taxpayer revenue, rethink our future, grow our economy, and bring back the surplus. All it requires is 4 things. 1) fresh pair of eyes 2) an open mind 3) gaining consensus and 4) common sense. The plan revolves around what is successful in other states and applying those best practices to CT. The same thinking that got us into this fiscal mess, can’t be used going forward. There is enough low hanging fruit to immediately stop the bleed, but we don’t have much time.

We must act now !

We have a limited time to turnaround the state, but with the right planning and action, we can do it. This plan will get it done. Please join the plan to protect our children’s future!
