Jaumann Kicks Off Run for State Rep Seat

ANSONIA- On Tuesday, March 6th, Joe Jaumann announced his run for State Representative of the 104th District at the site of Farrell Pomini’s new building at the Fountain Lake industrial Park . Farrell Corporation has a 150 year manufacturing history in Ansnia and the Valley.
“We are at Fountain Lake, because from this vantage point we have a view of much of the 104th district which includes Derby and Ansonia and because this site is representative of what can happen when a municipality works with private development and when you incentivize economic development.” said Jaumann
“Im not going to Hartford to talk. I'm going there to get things done for the hard working people of the 104th District. Farrel-Pomini Corporation was fleeing Ansonia and the Valley taking with them over 100 manufacturing jobs. To lose them would have been devastating. Ansonia fought to keep them and to retain valuable jobs. That was done through the swift actions of elected officials and I was proud to be a part of that. I learned how to create the kinds of partnerships and incentives needed to retain and increase jobs. That’s  exactly what I’m going to do in Hartford.  I’m going to help save jobs and help restore our economy. We are in desperate shape in Connecticut and we need decisive leaders who are willing to move swiftly to help our taxpayers.” 
As an attorney, Jaumann has spent years advocating for the rights and for the liberties of his clients. From the elderly struggling on a fixed income to meet their financial obligations, to young people and families seeking work and decent paying jobs, Jaumann has delivered. He fights for his clients and he will fight for the residents of Ansonia and Derby.
As an alderman, Jaumann has advocated for the taxpayers and students. Most recently, he spearheaded the movement to study regionalization in our schools.
By studying regionalization now, we can become more efficient and less dependent on Hartford in the future.” said Jaumann.
While serving on numerous boards like Planning and Zoning Jaumann made difficult decisions that helped bring development into the Valley.
“I want to make life easier for the constituents of the 104th. Taxes are too high and unemployment is high," he said. "I’ll work for everyone in Hartford to bring a better quality of life for all residents. It’s time to lesson the burden on the taxpayer. That will be my priority.”
Ansonia and Derby need someone who is no stranger to rolling up his sleeves, making tough decisions and getting teal results.
“I believe our communities and our residents deserve the kind of advocate in Hartford that will take action to do what right for his constituents," said Jaumann. "I understand the needs of our cities and I will be a voice for all the people of the 104th.”
