SAM believes that our political system needs to focus on solving problems. The two major parties have become gridlocked in a system that plays to extremes, rewards rhetoric over results, and prevents compromises required to address critical issues.
SAM is the only true big tent political organization made up of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, moderates, and those from the center-left and center-right. We come together, not around inflexible political positions or dogma, but by our core shared principles of fair and open elections and ballot access, campaign finance transparency, non-partisan election oversight and districting, and electoral reforms such as ranked-choice voting.
In CT, SAM will recruit and endorse candidates under the ‘Griebel-Frank for CT’ party, which is an affiliate of SAM national. Griebel-Frank candidates may not always agree with each other on specific issues, but they share a deep common desire to find ways to get things done. We recognize our candidates’ first obligation is to represent their constituents and the people of Connecticut. Our candidates will devote themselves to finding common-sense solutions to the issues facing our great state.
