Dunsby will turn state around State Rep. Adam Dunsby has successfully fought the governor’s attempt to push teachers’ pensions onto our towns. He is laser focused on turning Connecticut around, including no tax increases, no tolls and identifying efficiencies such as combining state departments to reduce spending. He has never missed a vote for you in Hartford. Since 2010, Connecticut GDP grew only 11% while New England grew 23% and Massachusetts 31%. Politics are local.

Election letters to the editor

Democrat supports Dunsby I’m a Democrat and I’m voting for Republican Adam Dunsby for state representative. He supports gun reform. Yes, a Republican co-sponsored our bump-stock ban. He’s pro-environment: In Easton, he helped our elementary school go solar, and now it gets 50% of its energy from its own solar panels, saving tax dollars and reducing pollution. He supported the state spending cap and passed the bonding cap. This frugality matters. Without it, Connecticut couldn’t provide the services its poorest need. He blocked the transferring of teachers’ pensions to towns, thus helping our schools. Dunsby has supported these liberal causes … Read more
