CCM launching TV ad to push for state budget compromise that would best help property taxpayers
The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM) today (Monday, June 19) announced that it has launched a new 30-second television spot, featuring Connecticut local leaders and town and city residents, that will run across all Connecticut markets in support of CCM’s push for a consensus state budget that incorporates initiatives by the Governor, the Democratic caucus, Republican caucus -- and CCM -- that best benefit towns and cities and their property taxpayers.
The 30-second spot is appearing through the end of June -- on WTNH-TV - Channel 8, WFSB-TV - Channel 3, WVIT-TV - Channel 30, WTIC-TV - Channel 61, and Cable News 12 in Fairfield County -- as the Governor and General Assembly leaders strive to come to an acceptable state budget agreement. CCM argues that any budget agreement must be in the best interest of Connecticut’s residential and business property taxpayers.
“The spot shows that Connecticut residents are concerned and want a state budget agreement that reflects the interests and pocketbook of the state’s property taxpayers,” said Joe DeLong, CCM Executive Director. “The spot also emphasizes that municipal leaders have listened to their residents and have repeatedly put forth legislative initiatives that would protect property taxpayers in any final state budget agreement. It is time for state leaders to listen to their residents as local leaders have done.”
