Representative Gerry Pollet worked with 13 freshman legislators to make our tax system more fair by pushing to eliminate unnecessary tax breaks for Wall Street and corporate investors. At the same time, Gerry has taken a lead role in passing a bill that will sunset and review all tax breaks to ensure they are either creating jobs or ensuring a better economic climate for our businesses.
When Gerry Pollet saw a story about outrageous charges of up to $2,000 for towing cars just because someone parked in the wrong spot, he didn’t wait for someone else to speak up. Gerry’s first bill to pass the house ended predatory towing charges. In the next year, Gerry will work the bill through the Senate so that people don’t lose their cars or face frustrating financial burdens because of predatory towing companies.
Championing Public Education
Gerry Pollet worked with other State House members taking a leadership role rejecting the Governor’s proposal to eliminate college work study making our four-year universities more affordable for thousands of college students. At the same time, Gerry will continue to work to eliminate tax breaks that aren’t working and re-prioritize those investments to our K -12 public schools and our colleges.
