2018 Candidate Bulletins
It is one of the highest callings to serve the residents and businesses of our state at the State Legislature, and CCM thanks all candidates who are running for public office. Our Candidate Bulletins represents a very important example of how CCM is here for candidates as a resource to help them build their knowledge on municipal issues to best serve Connecticut voters.
CCM is launching its “Election Campaign 2018” with our initial public policy report, Unfunded State Mandates: The Corrosive Impact on Property Taxpayers. It will be accompanied by five other Candidate Bulletins, which will focus on various municipal topics of importance to town and city leaders, residents and businesses.
Funding Public Education in Connecticut back to top
Public education in Connecticut is funded through a partnership between the local, state, and federal governments. Towns and cities are responsible for funding the majority of these costs. That means that, given the current tax structure, Connecticut is one of the most reliant states on the local property tax to fund public education.
