State Representatives David Arconti (D – Danbury) and Bob Godfrey (D-Danbury) are very pleased that Sikorsky Aircraft, which has made its home in Stratford since 1929, will remain here until at least 2032.
Rep. David Arconti said, “As this agreement requires legislative approval, I will be supporting the legislature’s quick action to secure a prominent employer as Sikorsky. This deal will benefit Connecticut’s economy as well as our local Danbury suppliers who do business with Sikorsky.”
State Representative David Arconti lauded the recent court decision that will require the state to overhaul the statutory school funding formula to improve the overall education system and address the numerous educational failings across the state.
I am pleased a measure I backed to benefit the manufacturing industry in the state is headed to the governor’s desk for signing. Despite this short session, and facing as many challenges as we did, we were able to adopt various business friendly measures like this one that will support the foundation of companies like Boehringer!
