Says Connecticut Is Seeking Common Sense Leaders Who Put People Before Politics
Mike DeGrego, Republican Candidate for State Senate recently earned the endorsement of the Milford Independent Party at their caucus on Saturday, August 25th for Connecticut ’s 14th District which includes Milford, Orange, and sections of West Haven and Woodbridge,
Over the last few months, DeGrego has already met with 100’s of independent and unaffiliated voters as he has been campaigning daily across the district. His message of going to Hartford to represent the people of the district and not blindly following party leadership has been enthusiastically received. A recent Quinnipiac Poll shows that 55% of independent voters disapprove of the way the state legislature is doing it’s job.
“I’m grateful for the support of our local Independent Party,” DeGrego said. “The 14th Senate District includes a large percentage of independent voters who expect their elected leaders to put partisan interests aside and do what’s best for the people of Connecticut. My focus is on creating jobs, lowering taxes and making it easier for all middle class families to live and work in a safe and stable Connecticut.”
"My opponent claims to be independent and bipartisan, but she has long been beholden to a liberal-Democratic agenda of bigger government and higher taxes. The local Independents had supported her in the past and this is a great honor to earn their support today. It is just another example of the hard working people of the district saying Enough is Enough!”
Mike DeGrego, lives in Milford and is a retired 26 year police officer in addition to a retired career Air Force Master Sergeant. He currently is a volunteer teacher at Our Lady of Victory in West Haven and serves on the Inland Wetlands Commission in Milford. After a lifetime of public service, he feels obligated to come out of retirement to run for the State Senate seat and bring some common sense leadership back to our legislature. DeGrego will be on the ballot on both the Republican line as well as the Independent line on election day, November 6th.
