Navy Veteran – Proud American

Meet Matthew

Matthew McKinnon Corey was born January 11, 1964 in Hartford, CT. In 1951, Matt’s parents, Frederick Thomas Corey and Marie Jean Corey, came from Maine to Hartford for better job opportunities after his father served in WWII.
Matt’s father worked for the U.S. Postal Service as a letter carrier by day and held many second jobs to make ends meet at night. He was a courier for Connecticut National Bank, a Hartford cab driver, and worked for a cleaning company.
Matt’s mother worked at Royal Typewriter in Hartford and also at Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, in security and investigations. She left those companies to raise her seven children and went back to work as often as she could. Matt is a lifelong resident of Manchester, CT.

On The Issues

Jobs and Opportunity

Connecticut used to have the most Patents in the country. Our state was an economic powerhouse, contributing great ideas and creating jobs that made an impact. People wanted to come here. We need to revive that entrepreneurial spirit here in our great State. We are home to some of the greatest contributors in Defense, Healthcare, Manufacturing and more, supported by hard-working people committed to keeping our Nation safe and Healthy. Let’s strengthen our relationship with them by promoting STEM programs to educate our community and on vital trade skills.

Infrastructure

We desperately need a plan for our outdated transportation system. TOLLS are not the answer. The
taxpayers of Connecticut have sacrificed enough. The legislators need to stop STEALING money that is intended for our infrastructure needs. If we cut 2 to 3 percent of our entire State Budget, we can find the funds needed. We have some of the largest ports outside of NEW York City that are being underutilized. We have an outdated rail system and routes that do not spur economic growth. We live between two major cities and Connecticut needs to be more attractive to developers. We can do this by encouraging private investment in our State and then providing the infrastructure to move goods, services and people.

Environmental

Connecticut has some of the highest energy prices in the country. We have an opportunity to invest in our Nuclear Plants and finish the Natural Gas pipeline connecting the entire Northeast corridor. We are on the cutting edge of Fuel Cell technology, Biomass, Geothermal, Tidal Power and Solar just to name a few. We have to lower the energy costs for our residents, who some are on fixed incomes, and for our business community as well. Every potential for saving that we create helps to empower the best and brightest of the next generation here in Connecticut.
