Manage Hamden’s tax dollars responsibly through spending restraint, implementing efficiencies and hard-nosed negotiations. As mayor, my administration will be fiscally responsible, accountable, transparent and responsive to taxpayers.

Hamden's Debt

The Office of Policy and Management produces a report every year called the “Municipal Fiscal Indicators.” This report came out last week for FY19 and Hamden is once again number 1 in total debt per capita in the entire state. The amount of debt we have is out of control and kicking the can down the road is not working for us.
