WHAT HAS THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT DONE FOR WESTPORT IN THE PAST DECADE?

 

  • Funding for education has declined over 95% impacting our kids education.

 

  • State taxes have significantly increased twice, driving major corporations out of state.

 

  • Commuting time and train fares have risen along with an increase in local traffic.

 

MY PROMISE TO WESTPORT

 

As an Independent Reformer, I will introduce  Financial and Quality of Life Reforms that protect us from Hartford’s financial crisis and misguided policies.

 

As an Education Advocate, I will work for the restoration of state education funding to preserve our top ranked schools. 

 

As a Supporter of Seniors, I will make our state more affordable for by materially lowering taxes and boosting assisted living programs.

 

As a Transportation Activist, I will work to make your trains faster and lower your fares.

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.

On Nov 6th, your vote will make a difference! 

Meet Greg

Who is Greg Kraut?

Greg is a self-made successful businessman and public advocate. Greg love’s living in CT and raising his two sons here. His unwavering mission is to ensure that Westport 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 his concern for our future.

Greg wants CT to be 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.

Greg will no longer sit idly by and watch the negative impact on Westport and has answered the calling for a new State Representative devoted to addressing your needs.

Greg is a husband, a father and a current member of Westport’s legislative body and know’s first hand how state budget cuts have impacted you, your families, our schools and your local services.  He has observed first hand businesses leaving CT and families moving from Fairfield County.

Greg has had years of hands-on experience advising companies, creating jobs, and solving financial problems. He will do the same for you. He has developed an economic recovery plan that addresses our crisis (you can read it at gregkraut.com/#erplan).

Greg wants to hear from you regarding issues that you want addressed by the State Legislature. Feel free to send him an email at greg@gregkraut.com. There is no longer time for our state officials’ endless talk and lack of action.

Sincerely,

Greg
