Campaign themes


Pia's 2011 campaign website details his policy platform:

  • "Connecticut is facing a deficit in excess of 3.5 Billion this year alone and we need someone in Hartford who is ready to make the tough choices to bring stability, responsibility and common sense back to the State Government. The Governor's planned tax increases are a direct attack on Stamford residents and the those especially in the 148th district that my family has served for a half century. The majority of these residents are hardworking, middle class families, small business owners and seniors who have lived here most of their lives. I OPPOSE TAX INCREASES, I will work AGAINST proposing tax increases and most importantly I will vote AGAINST tax increases. Government has grown too much, and just as many Stamford residents have had to cut spending and watch their money, the government needs to as well. We cannot spend more than we bring in, we cannot borrow more than we can afford to pay back....Common Sense"[3]
