State Representative Charles Ferraro (R-117) announced he is seeking to continue the important work of resolving the state’s financial crisis and advocating for the residents of Milford, Orange, and West Haven. “Right now my focus is on the legislative session and preventing Governor Malloy from pushing more taxes through.” said Representative Ferraro. “I joined my Republican colleagues last session and showed that we can pass a state budget that starts to restore our state’s economy and doesn’t rely on increased taxes. Allowing a tire tax, a restaurant tax, and tolls to go through now will set us back drastically.”
Since 2014, Rep. Ferraro has championed legislation helping veterans, small business owners, individuals with intellectual disabilities, first responders, and reformed the affordable housing regulations. Ferraro also supported a historic bipartisan budget passed last year that implemented a real bonding and spending cap.
“In 2014 I went to Hartford and hit the ground running,” said Rep. Ferraro. “By working across the aisle, I was able to pass legislation that helped taxpayers in our communities, and legislation that will reform our state government. I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish in such a short period of time, but we still have a lot of work to do. I will not stop until our economy is firing on all cylinders and taxes are reduced.”
Rep. Ferraro is the ranking member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee and serves on the legislature’s Human Services and Energy & Technology Committees. Ferraro owns West Haven Academy of Karate, Inc and oversees over 70 karate schools in the United States and 30 in South America.
