Sen. Tony Hwang (left) on May 9 joined real estate professionals, state lawmakers and UConn Women’s Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma for a May 9 rally in Bushnell Park in Hartford.

The Connecticut Association of Realtors hosted the rally to urge state lawmakers to “give us a Connecticut we can sell” as they craft a new two-year budget.

Sen. Hwang, who is a member of the Greater Bridgeport Association of Realtors and serves as Co-Chair of the legislature’s Housing Committee, commended the hundreds in attendance for speaking out for pro-business, pro-taxpayer solutions to Connecticut’s budget problems. He noted that Republicans have put forth a thoughtful alternative budget plan which includes no tax hikes and is not balanced on the backs of property taxpayers.  Hwang said that no tax increase solutions in solving Connecticut’s budget crisis will require discipline and courage.
