I am currently a student at the University of Connecticut's West Hartford Branch and the Republican nominee for State Representative in Connecticut House District 30. I am a lifelong resident of Berlin and the state of Connecticut. In addition, I graduated Berlin High School as a member of the class of 2015. My connection to the town of Southington goes back generations, to when my family first arrived as Italian immigrants. Both my father and his father grew up there, and I still have family in Southington today. I think Connecticut is a beautiful state and I think many people would agree, but sadly, people are being forced to relocate due to a lack of employment opportunities and our unaffordable tax burden. I know that this is something that I can help change. I feel that I can offer a unique, outsider's perspective in our state government as well as ideas that can get help move things in the right direction. I will not be afraid to fight for what is best for my constituents, even if it means going against my own party at times.
