Chris on the Issues

Chris Donovan is a proven and recognized Democratic leader with a broad, deep history of fighting for health care, promoting job growth, improving the environment, standing up for women’s issues, and fighting for clean government.

Chris’s work on behalf of Connecticut’s working families, in the legislature and in the community, has produced landmark results, including a first-in-the-nation statewide paid sick leave law to ensure workers have access to paid leave to care for themselves and their families, a statewide healthcare pooling plan that uses bulk purchasing power to decrease risk and lower premiums, the strongest public campaign finance system in the nation for all elections to state offices, increased protections for domestic violence victims by expanding access to protective orders and critical information, and protecting Medicare and Medicaid eligibility and benefit levels from cuts.

In Congress, Chris will fight to bring jobs to Connecticut, preserve Medicare and Social Security, bring our troops home, improve our aging infrastructure, protect our natural resources and encourage innovations in alternative sources of energy, and ensure clean and fair elections.
