After years of Democratic rule and the high taxes in Connecticut, an executive execution for the Governor on a Trumpian economic platform is to bring swore fiscal stability and big-business – back to the nutmeg state.

The Connecticut native Bob Stefanowski, who has, with an assist from the legendary former Reagan administration adviser Arthur Laffer, crafted an economic plan-the couple believes will reverse the state of the fiscal crisis.

“I support Trump economic policy, and the way he cut the re-offerings and streamlining of the government, and we urgently need some of that leadership in Connecticut,” Stefanowski, a former chief executive officer of several divisions at General Electric and former chief financial officer at UBS Investment Bank, said on Fox News.

Connecticut has seen an Exodus of large companies in recent years, under the leadership of Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy—Stefanowski, the former company General Electric, and Aetna, in the case of large losses.

Malloy announced he would not come up for re-election in November—the opening of the door for several Republican and democratic gubernatorial hopefuls.

Currently, there are six GOP primary candidates. The majority of candidates served in some local or state political offices, while Stefanowski, no political experience.

“You need someone, the trump is a good example—who has to run things, before, anyone who has negotiated,” said Stefanowski. “I have the skills to deliver.”

Stefanowski, decided to bypass, the state of the Republicans. Instead, he has to be a Petition added to the primary ballot.

“The current convention process discourages the kind of candidates that want the majority of voters — a fresh, outside-and real-world perspective of a new candidate who has not already advertise to potential participants for years,” Stefanowski, wrote to the Chairman of the CT GOP.

Connecticut requires you to collect a candidate for petitions, 9081 signatures, or 2% of registered Republicans. Stefanowski told Fox News that he collected 16,000 Republican supporters for his petition.

The Connecticut Secretary of state has to take place by the end of June to confirm Stefanowski slot for the primary—which will be in August.

“People are leaving. We are told to repent, what did the Democrats, for the last eight years,” Stefanowksi.

Other Republican candidates, including Danbury mayor Mark Boughton, who has the GOP endorsement, and former Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst has won, qualified for the primary school, have also rise to the idea of a Rollback of income.

Prior to 1991, Connecticut did not have a state income tax draws good life of the well-heeled workers in Boston and New York City, in the affluent suburb of-state.

According to Laffer, the author of the famous control algorithm, known as the “Laffer curve,” in Connecticut, was one of the most powerful States in the nation, before the introduction of the income tax by former democratic Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr

Now, in Connecticut, the implementation of which is at the bottom in the United States, with a credit rating, the third worst ranked in the country, behind New Jersey and Illinois.

“It is a catastrophic, 180-degree turn” Laffer, whose formula has shown that higher taxes leads to lower revenue for the government, told Fox News. “I write the turn around of the income tax and change in the philosophy of the government in the state of Connecticut.”

Laffer blasted the other Republican candidates, what you were “just spouting rhetoric”, says Stefanowski, as someone who “knows how to get the company back in.”

“I’ve never been a gubernative candidate, let alone a Governor who has the skills and the abilities that Bob has, for the changes to take effect real change,” said Laffer. “This guy knows how to fix the plumbing, as well as the company run.”

Stefanowski, and Laffer told Fox News that Trump, chief-economist Larry Kudlow also reviewed and approved Stefanowski economic plan for Connecticut.

Connecticut, like much of the New-England States, has always been blue. But in the last few years, a wave of Republicans to the Governor’s mansions, including Gov. Charlie Baker, Massachusetts; Gov. Chris Sununu in New Hampshire; Gov. Paul LePage in Maine, Gov. Phil Scott, Vermont.

Connecticut’s last Republican Governor, in 2004, chose, Jodi Rell, was preceded by former Republican Gov. John Rowland in 1995.

Despite the left-wing elections base, Malloy ranked is currently the least popular Governor in the nation. GOP officials hope that the ranking will inspire the voters to the displacement in the direction of the center or on the right-hand side could, if you come to the gubernatorial candidates in November.
