TESTED EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT
Mike has relevant work experience in the private sector; as well as real hands-on experience in the public sector, working with both republicans and democrats.
Mike has over 15 years of experience in finance working at best-in-class firms prior to devoting his career to public service.
Mike is a numbers guy, not a politician. The numbers either add up or they don’t – something the current administration has failed to understand over the last seven years.
As a senior executive, Mike understands what business leaders and entrepreneurs are looking for, and can execute the plan to make Connecticut attractive to businesses again.
WORKING ACROSS THE AISLE
Mike was appointed by Stamford’s Republican Mayor and asked to remain by the City’s incoming Democratic Mayor. The State’s challenges are not partisan and neither are the solutions. Mike has proven he can work with legislators from both parties to implement real solutions to tough challenges.
PUBLIC SAFETY EXPERT
Mike has over twenty years of experience in emergency services. As an emergency medical technician, Mike has been called upon to handle countless life-threatening situations. He has worked in rural and urban systems and knows first-hand the value of critical reasoning skills, training and teamwork. Mike’s success as Director of New Canaan’s Office of Emergency Management is directly linked to his being a hands-on leader. He leads by example and knows how to build and support a team.
