Mark Stewart Greenstein is a businessman, former lawyer, and educator. During law school, he supported himself teaching SAT prep courses. He felt he could do better for students and founded a tutoring firm of his own in 2001. Since then he has helped over 5000 students enter competitive colleges. His current business is Education Excellence, which gives students more post-grad opportunities through outsourced in-school guidance counseling
Mark is a liberty-oriented democrat. He is helping the Democrat party return to tolerance and individualism.
Mr. Greenstein would roll back state welfare in favor of private welfare, and abolish ECS in favor of choice for school children. He would end the income tax, reduce regulations on business, end state control over individuals who harm nobody, reassert the death penalty, and assertively hunt cyber-criminals. Mr. Greenstein would end political favoritism by pushing to repeal three laws for every one passed, and would not vote for any law longer than two pages.
Mark takes zero money from donors. His campaign is based only on personal savings.
If empowered by Governor Lamont, Mark will bring out-of-state businesses to Connecticicut, including international firms and an NHL team to replace the Whalers.
