"People don't know who to turn to anymore and with good reason. I say to those disillusioned, those disgruntled, those disenfranchised citizens betrayed by the republicans and democrats time and time again, turn to me and to the Green Party to carry your burden.  Otherwise, we are in for more of the same after November 2010." - G. Scott Deshefy, Candidate for Congress 2010, Connecticut's 2nd district.

Welcome to the candidate's website!
 

The staff supporting Scott Deshefy's campaign is happy to welcome you to our website. We thank you for your interest and hope that we will soon get to meet you in person. As Scott travels his district, talking to constituents and letting them  know about the changes he will fight for in Washington, he hopes that you will be asking the hard questions; because Scott has the answers.  
 

Please be sure to check our News and Events pages frequently, and we will keep you informed about the many places Scott will be speaking -- then please come out to see us, frequently! We think you will enjoy our enthusiasm, and we feel sure that Scott will win your support when you hear his insights, feel how dedicated he is, and hear what CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED in Congress.

 

If you know how unusually large the 2nd District is, you will understand that this campaign has a lot of distance to cover. We have already begun scheduling talks on several themes, and Scott has been on the road talking about Single Payer Health Care since last summer. This is his second campaign, and this is WHY he is running again. He has been ready -- he is informed, passionate, articulate, and you will see that he means business!

 

Please come out and see us.  

Please support him and ask how you can get involved --  Help us SEND THIS MAN TO WASHINGTON!!  

 

       These are a few of the issues that Scott is passionate about and we will be speaking about at scheduled events and rallies: Please check our calendar for the next event. We hope to see you there!

 

    -Aggressive job creation centered on green technology, alternative energy production and a living

      wage, we call it a "New Green Deal."

 

    - Immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops and military contractors from Iraq and Afghanistan.

       30% reduction in U.S. Military spending for foreign military bases and 50% reduction in congressional

       subsidies to allied militaries.

 

    -Conversion of our prohibitive, low-ranking health care system to an equitable single-payer,

      not-for-profit health care system, which will be the envy of the world, financed by a national

      pool and administered in a way which minimizes government involvement and empowers physicians.
