Rep. Gerry Pollet is working to make our tax system more fair and to provide the revenue we need to provide for our children's education, the opportunities of higher education, health and mental health care, and social services. As your Representative, Gerry stands up against the special interests who have made our tax system the least fair in the entire nation, where retirees and poor pay more in taxes than if they lived anywhere else in the US, while the world’s wealthiest corporations pay less in taxes than in any other state.
When Gerry Pollet saw a story about predatory towing companies’ outrageous charges of up to $2,000 to get your car back just because you parked in the wrong spot, he didn’t wait for someone else to speak up. Gerry’s legislation ended predatory towing charges so that people don’t have to choose between losing their car and paying their rent or a mortgage.

Gerry’s a leader to provide the revenue we need to fund our schools and make our tax system more fair so our children’s constitutional rights to education aren’t put on hold for another generation. He developed the Legislature’s comprehensive plan to address the teacher shortage crisis in 2016. Gerry's work to improve access and support for higher education has been recognized as Legislator of the Year.
