Successful business man Bob Stefanowski of Branford, who has never run for political office, plans a big roll out of his campaign for Connecticut governor, next Monday. The New Haven native has several events planned across the state with Dr. Arthur Laffer, an economic adviser to Presidents Trump and Reagan.
In an interview on the Talk of Connecticut’s Brad & Dan Show on Wednesday morning, Stefanowski hinted that his plan would include weening Connecticut off of the state income tax. He also stated he’s for privatizing the Department of Motor Vehicles. If elected, Stefanowski also said he would push for term limits, the recall vote and the ballot initiative.
Saying the next governor must demonstrate “financial discipline,” Stefanowski also stated “Hartford is going to have to file for bankruptcy.” Stefanowski added he loves Hartford, worked in the city and met his wife there, but that the reality is the legislature is throwing good money after bad with repeated bailouts to the city.
