Businessman, CT-Gov. Candidate Stemerman Releases Second Ad

The ad touts Stemerman's new plan to "save Connecticut."

David Stemerman, a businessman who’s one of the final five GOP candidates running for governor ahead of an August primary, released his second television ad on Friday.

The ad, which introduces Stemerman to voters and is part of his $400,000 statewide effort on television, radio, and digital platforms, shares aspects of Stemerman’s plan to “grow” and “save” the state.

“His outside-the-box plan cuts spending, ends the Hartford bailout, and restructures government union benefits, saving billions,” the narrator says. “It eliminates job-crushing business taxes, and cuts income taxes for all. More mone in our pockets. It ends the death tax”

“Join me,” Stemerman says toward the end of the ad. “Let’s save Connecticut.”

Stemerman’s 20-page plan features a “three-pronged approach to reignite growth”:

  • “slashing taxes and regulations to the lowest levels in the Northeast by cutting spending and eliminating unfair deals”
  • “upgrading our roads, trains and airports for the 21st Century by attracting billions of dollars of private investment”
  • “improving our schools to become the best in the country through high standards, accountability and choice”

Stemerman is competing against party-endosred Mayor Mark Boughton (R-Danbury), ex-First Selectman Tim Herbst (R-Trumbull), Mayor Mark Lauretti (R-Shelton), and businessman Bob Stefanowski in the Republican primary.
