State Representative Charles Ferraro (R-117) was unanimously endorsed Wednesday evening as the Republican candidate for the 117th District House seat, comprising parts of Milford, Orange and West Haven.
“Since becoming your State Representative in 2014, I have enjoyed meeting people and listening to their concerns. From organizing the cleanup of a local river, to advocating for seniors, veterans, and fighting against cuts to our children’s educational funding, I have done my best to make things better during these difficult times for our State.” said Ferraro.
“This past session I joined my Republican colleagues to propose a budget that halted Governor Malloy’s new taxes on tires, cell phones, and other harmful tax increases. We also stopped the implementation of tolls throughout Connecticut. We had enough influence on the Democratic controlled house to block these detrimental measures and pass a compromise budget. I am proud that we were able to enact a budget with spending and bonding caps. While we did not get everything we wanted, it was better than their original proposed budget.”
Since 2014, Rep. Ferraro has championed legislation helping veterans, small business owners, individuals with intellectual disabilities, first responders, and reforms of the affordable housing regulations.
“There is more we must do to move Connecticut forward, but the most important task facing us this election season is winning a Republican majority in the House. Without that majority, rest assured that Democrats will once again try to implement tolls and find other new ways to raise your taxes. I will not stop until our economy is firing on all cylinders and taxes are reduced for everyone,” said Charles Ferraro.
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.
