Where He Stands

How Jerrell Hargraves will work for you

Communities like New Britain don't receive the funds needed to properly run our schools. New Britain currently falls second to last in spending per student and it has only gotten worse over the years. As State Representative, I'll fight to make sure cities like New Britain receive the proper state funding to ensure that all students are successful.

High Schools play a crucial role in developing the future workforce. It's time we start tailoring workforce development programs to prioritize in-demand industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, aerospace, and many other upcoming and thriving industries. 

Housing has become unaffordable for many families in this state. With rent prices at an all-time high, we need to find ways to make housing more affordable. Affordable and workforce housing allows workers to pay a reasonable amount for rent while being able to provide the needs of their families now and in the future.

For decades, people of color have been disproportionately affected by the criminal justice system. This system has not only ruined and affected lives but has had a negative effect on generations of families. As State Representative, I would support legislation that would hold those with authority accountable, provide fair and consistent punishment and legislation that will allow those who have served their time to be able to start over again without roadblocks.
