The Roundup has endorsed Mike Nicastro for the 31st State Senate Seat which includes, Bristol, Plainville, Plymouth, Thomaston and Harwinton.

Nicastro’s relentless push for local business owners, higher education officials and community leaders to address the growing issue of jobs for college graduates and the upcoming wave of retiring business owners known as the “Silver Tsunami” makes Nicastro the clear choice to move Connecticut’s students and retirees in the right direction.

“We have four major state universities, dozens of community colleges and Charter Oak State College, which have 90,000 students that want to stay and work here in Connecticut, but they struggle to find jobs. Together we need to develop a low cost but highly effective process that can create a link between the two.” said Nicastro.

Mike is focused on five points:

Succession Planning – Addressing the close to 47% of small businesses that are owned by residents who are 55 years of age or older -a small business “Silver Tsunami.”and an economic peril.

Fiscal management- Developing a fiscally sound budget is not a “set it and forget it” effort.

Innovation – Reinvigorating a sense of innovation in our economy and in how we govern.

Entrepreneurship – =Celebrating and encouraging innovation to inspire the entrepreneurs in our midst.

Succession Planning – Addressing the close to 47% of small businesses that are owned by residents who are 55 years of age or older -a small business “Silver Tsunami.”and an economic peril.

Higher Education – Supporting the state’s higher education assets in its colleges and universities and the opportunity they give to our future generations.

The Roundup encourages voters to learn more about Mike and his vision for Connecticut.
