The Norwalk Hour
Stephanie Thomas has ‘creative solutions for restoring our economy’
I support Stephanie Thomas for State Representative in the 143rd district because we need someone who confronts change with agility.
Stephanie can relate to economic hardship, and has creative solutions for restoring our economy while defeating COVID-19.
In addition to federal loans and stimulus money, Stephanie would invest in options like the Shared Work Program, wherein employees work fewer hours, and collect partial unemployment to maintain their income. Stephanie proposes collaborating with nonprofits like AdvanceCT to maximize Connecticut’s appeal to existing and new business, and highlights improving our transportation infrastructure toward that end.
I am a Nurse Practitioner with more than 40 years of experience in primary care and I know the importance of health care for all. Stephanie supports holding insurance companies to their promise to waive COVIDrelated health care costs. She embraces a public healthcare option and caps on prescription drugs to ensure healthcare affordability. With increased isolation and fear engendered by the pandemic, Stephanie advocates for more accessible mental health care through policies eliminating stigma and gaps in coverage. Accessible metal health care is essential to avoid preventable tragedies at home or in school.
Stephanie is service-oriented, as evidenced by her career raising funds for the nonprofit sector. She embodies soft power, eschewing shows of might for building relationships. She is a leader who will tenaciously pursue the best for those she serves.
Stephanie is a team player. Now more than ever, we need our elected government officials to work as a team for the greater good.
