ANSONIA/DERBY- The Connecticut Independent Party has endorsed Republican Joseph
Jaumann for State Representative in the 104th District.
Jaumann, a political newcomer, is a local attorney and chairman of the Ansonia Planning and Zoning Commission, and his name will now appear on both the Republican and Independent ballot lines on Election Day.
“I’m proud to be endorsed by both the Republican and Independent parties and I look forward to
serving the residents of our great community,” said Jaumann. “The Independent Party’s goal of
non-partisan problem solving is the same approach that I believe in, and it is same the approach
that we need in Hartford to move Connecticut in the right direction.”
The Independent Party is the third-largest political party in Connecticut and has endorsed many
candidates across the state this year.
It is estimated that Connecticut will face another budget deficit in the 2017 legislative session.
In 2011 and 2015, Rep. Gentile sided with Gov. Malloy, and voted for the two largest taxes in
To that point, Jaumann added,
“We need a new start. A leader who will be independent minded and a voice of the people of Ansonia and Derby, and not simply a rubber stamp for the Governor. It is clear that the policy of raising taxes and borrowing to pay for the state’s spending problem isn’t working. We need to have and open and honest discussion about our budget and not wait till the 11th hour to have the conversation. We need to tackle the budget problems in this state head on starting on the first day of the session, so we can start focusing on the future and our children’s futures."
