STRATFORD — Republican gubernatorial candidate John McKinney released a plan Thursday to eliminate the state income tax for residents earning less than $75,000 beginning in 2017.
McKinney, the state senate minority leader, is competing for the Republican nomination against Tom Foley, the party’s convention-endorsed candidate. Republican voters will go to the polls on Aug. 12 to pick a candidate. Whichever wins will face incumbent Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
“We believe middle class people across Connecticut have paid too much in taxes and they deserve their money back,” McKinney said at a press conference outside a plaza in Stratford.
