Connie Jagodzinski, a Republican, today announced her intention to run for State Representative in Milford’s 118th District. The official paperwork has been filed with the state, according to a campaign official.
“In 1991 I joined the march on Hartford to protest the proposed state income tax,” Jagodzinski said. “This was supposed to be the answer to Connecticut’s financial problems. It’s 27 years later and Connecticut faces deficit after deficit fueled by over spending, historically high taxes, business strangling regulations and underfunded pensions. People and companies are abandoning our state. I can’t sit by as the state I love, a state once envied for its prosperity and quality of life becomes unlivable for more and more people. If my grandchildren ask what I did to try to stop Connecticut’s slide, I want to be able to say that I fought – I did everything I could to help turn the state around and make it a better place for you and all its citizens”.
