State Rep Meskers will discuss the state of Connecticut’s economy as it begins to emerge from the stresses of the pandemic.
While by all standards the state effectively handled the medical challenges of Covid-19, how has it fared economically? What has been the impact of the crisis on state finances and Connecticut’s GDP and what lies ahead on the road to recovery?
Representative Meskers is well positioned to address these issues. As the vice-chair of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee, he has proved himself to be a strong advocate for policies on taxation, environmental protection, energy reform, and healthcare costs and continues to advocate against higher capital gains taxes and against a statewide property tax.
Along with the Governor he wants to accelerate the income tax relief on retirement income.
Stephen identifies himself as a Democrat, a fiscal conservative, and a social progressive. In November 2018 he was elected State Representative for the 150th district in Connecticut, the first Democrat elected from the district in over 100 years. He has just completed the first year of his second legislative term. This December, Greenwich received 1.2 mm in grants for a number of non-profit building projects around town, including the Red Cross Blood Donation Center, Neighbor to Neighbor New Center, the Rebuild of Senior Center on Greenwich Avenue, and the Chimes Building at Greenwich Point.
Meskers has a BA from Fordham University in Economics and Spanish, and an MBA in Finance from the Lubin School at Pace University.
Prior to entering the House, Representative Meskers had a 35 year career in emerging markets at Irving Trust, Chemical Bank and Banco Santander.Please
