My name is Dan Maymin and I’m running as a Republican for state representative for the Connecticut House District 147 (Stamford and Darien). I’m running against incumbent state Rep. Matt Blumenthal, a Democrat. We have enough dime-a-dozen attorneys and career politicians in Hartford; it’s time for people who are actually from the community to represent our interests.
I’ve lived in Stamford the past decade, first in Springdale and the past two years in North Stamford with my wife and 20-month-old son. I graduated from University of Connecticut’s Stamford campus in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in economics, and have been with various investment firms in the area the past 11 years. Our state legislature does not even understand that we are helplessly insolvent. Everyone knows what the real issue is, but no one wants to talk about it. We need to address the subservience of state government to our public sector unions. It is time for pension reform and transparency.
