About Paul

Branford resident Paul Crisci is an honest, faith-based, family centric, business owner who was born and raised in Bronx, NY. Growing up in a diversified area of the Bronx during the 70s and 80s helped Paul Crisci become who he is today. With economic stagnation throughout the country, the Bronx fell on hard times in the 70s. Paul grew up in a predominately lower-income area with rising rates of crime. Nothing came easy to Paul. Growing up with a single mother, who worked two, sometimes three, jobs at a time, just to keep the lights on and food on the table, Paul learned from an early age the importance of work ethic. His humble beginnings did not deter him from being the best he could be. 

As a young man, Paul Crisci worked many jobs, including construction, electrician, refrigeration and air conditioning, and even tried his hand at sailmaking in Port Jefferson, Long Island. After many jobs, Paul finally found something he loved, which was working in the automotive industry. As he worked his way through the ranks, Paul Crisci learned the value of business and all it had to offer. In the early 90s, Paul started a family and knew the best opportunity for a successful future was to buy his first home in the beautiful state of Connecticut. And 23 years ago, that’s exactly what Paul Crisci did. He moved his family to Monroe, Connecticut to give his three young daughters a better opportunity for education, a cleaner environment, and a beautiful home  

As his daughters grew older, they became more involved in community activities. Although working 60+ hours a week in the automotive industry, Paul never missed his daughters activities, including youth sports. Shortly after the move to Connecticut, Paul became more involved in his daughters social development by becoming the head coach of his daughters’ Little League teams and eventually their travel softball program. Paul did not stop there. When he realized his daughters passion for the game, he continued by creating a local travel program that eventually grew to over a hundred players from the ages of 8 to 18 years old 

Paul’s greatest passion outside his family is helping young people grow, not only in sports like softball but in the classroom and beyond by teaching the fundamentals of life through youth sports. Prior to retiring in 2020 from the organization he founded, Paul led the Connecticut Seahawks Girls Fastpitch Softball organization for 15+ years, helping young ladies pursue their dreams of attending college, receiving scholarships, and teaching hundreds of young girls softball fundamentals, as well as true life lessons on how to give back to their communities post high school and college. His mission statement to all the players was simply, God, Family, School, and only then Softball. He coined the phrase “Learn, Earn & Return” and Paul lives by that motto every day, which is why he believes now is his time to give back to the state and the community he loves so much by running for District 12 Senate 

 As for Paul Crisci’s professional life, he is a self-made businessman. After leaving the automotive industry back in 2005, Paul Crisci opened his own business consulting and marketing firm, Park Group Solutions. Over the past 17 years, Park Group Solutions has grown from a small 4-person, mom-and-pop operation, to a full-service marketing, consulting, advertising, and production company with employees in Connecticut, New York, Virginia, and Florida. Paul spends his days consulting businesses on finances, processes, people, and creating comprehensive marketing plans. Paul is a leader who works day-to-day alongside a team of people who develop plans for local industries, such as automotive, legal, municipalities, medical, education, real estate, and communication.  

Now, after many years of frustration with the political system and the politicians who run it, Paul believes his years of successfully consulting businesses can serve the people of District 12 by addressing the needs of all the people while holding Hartford fiscally and morally accountable, regardless of which party has the majority.

Paul Crisci believes Connecticut residents need a voice at the Capitol.

When elected will represent the interest and concerns of ALL the residents of District 12 without prejudice, regardless of party affiliation.

Paul Crisci believes his job when elected is to be an advocate for all parents, especially when it comes to decisions about their children’s education.

Paul Crisci believes his years of experience in consulting businesses will allow him the ability to hold Hartford fiscally responsible including fighting to lower taxes.

Paul Crisci believes that we can reduce taxes without sacrificing our way of life in Connecticut.

Paul Crisci believes the only way to address the rising crime rate is to support our first responders and police.

When elected, Paul Crisci will spend valuable time working to preserve and improve Connecticut’s environment, without compromising our fiscal responsibilities to the state.

After another moment in history that has been bestowed upon us in a world of word crafting and spin, where do you start? As a candidate running for District 12 State Senate, I could convey heartfelt sentiments with innuendoes about how the other side is to blame. Alternatively, I could adopt a scorched-earth approach with no filter and passionately argue that this is why we need change. However, at the end of the day, the truth remains that the majority of people in our towns, districts, state, and country will do what we always do... forget. Not just forgetting about the day or the event, but forgetting to pause and ponder, "How did we get here?" Was it President Trump's, along with half the country's, fault for vocalizing what they believe, or was it the rhetoric of others pointing blame at Hollywood, the media, Democrats, and President Biden? The reality is that yesterday was tragic, not just because President Trump was shot, but because we, as Americans, took another step towards becoming the people we claim not to be. So, I ask anyone reading this post, do you really care about my thoughts on yesterday's events? Many politicians nationwide, as well as locally, hastily took to social media to express their best wishes and thoughts. Did they do it in the hopes that Donald Trump would see it, or did they do it to say to their constituents, “look at me” I’m a compassionate, concerned politician?

Shortly after the news broke, I received messages from several individuals via text and social media expressing their thoughts. Unfortunately, some of these statements were followed by remarks like, "Sadly they missed him" and "Sadly they didn't hit him in his big mouth instead."

To the contrary, many of us forget that on March 30th, 1981, President Ronald Reagan survived an attempted assassination. Although social media didn’t exist and there weren't as many media outlets as there are today, individuals from all walks of life and party affiliations anxiously awaited news on the well-being of the President. When President Reagan was about to undergo surgery to remove the bullet from his body, he lightened the mood by joking with the medical team, saying, "I hope you are all Republicans." The head surgeon responded, "Mr. President, today we are all Republicans," eliciting laughter. That's who we used to be. That's who our parents were, and that's who we were as Americans.

Merely placing signs on our lawns that say, "Please Be Kind," while spreading hateful words and accusing people of being racist and labeling people as “Hitler” and “Nazi” based on political affiliations or differing views, renders us as Americans, nothing more than hypocrites and accomplices to a generational trend... unless we genuinely desire change. Unless we are prepared to accept defeat to the opposing party in a fair election, regardless of whether they belong to the "R" or "D" party.

Regrettably, I am concerned that in the days ahead, we will hear spins suggesting that the shooter was a disgruntled Republican or a mentally unwell individual with no political motives all wrapped into a cry for once again, gun law reform while ignoring the ENTIRE big picture. Irrespective of the shooter’s motives, he is a product of a society that focuses more on addressing the symptoms of our national and state issues rather than curing the underlying disease. President Trump was shot because as a society, we have lost our way, not due to narratives spun to comfort ourselves. Whether at a local or national level, the majority of us have become a population of "wannabe" influencers and keyboard gangsters with no tangible solutions to substantial problems.

So, in conclusion, I return to where I began this statement. "What do you say after another moment in our history like this?" For me, the answer is simple. I pray. I pray for President Trump's well-being and safety, and I pray that this moment imparts wisdom and clarity to steer us towards a nation where common sense and humanity guide us, not individual political agendas or designer special interest issues. I pray that when we cast our votes, we think not only of ourselves but of what is best for our neighbors. Above all, I pray for a country and state that recognizes the need to revert to common sense in our societal journey.

God bless us all!

Good morning Paul, this was a great read. I believe this assignation attempt will not be forgotten especially after the Democratic Party and main stream media was villainizing Trump for many years and true patriots are not going to forget this. I know I will not. As a Republican we have been attacked for a decade and now that we are fighting back they can’t handle it even some to the left Republicans can’t handle it. One advise represent the Republicans in your district and their beliefs they are the ones that hopefully put you in office. God bless you have my vote.

Well written and rational and I appreciate and agree with much of what you wrote. I agree especially with ‘it will be forgotten’. Not only have the Dems perpetuated this cycle, they thrive on it. They will create ‘crisis’ after ‘crisis’ so we are overwhelmed and too occupied to remember. Have we forgotten they impeached President Trump…2 times. Russiagate? Forget the sham Muller report? Forget Biden is ‘too old’ to be prosecuted but he’s able to run our country? Forget the sham Jan 6th trials? The calls for public shame and physical harm to anyone that differs from their talking points? Forget their vitriol and nasty name calling ? Never mind that President Trump narrowly missed being shot to death. Do you think they are done just because the clandestine second shooter missed? (Do you really think a 20-year-old running across a hot tin roof with an assault weapon was able to group a series of shots in a 3 inch circle while on the run from authorities?) No ‘conspiracy theory’ is off the table at this point. I say DON’T FORGET 🇺🇸! Remember their actions and thirst for power are not going to stop. Remember this on November 4th while there is still time to salvage what remains of our country. Remember what our courageous leader President Trump has sacrificed and vote Republican !
