I am hosting a Health & Wellness Fair with the Berlin Senior Center on Friday, May 13th, from 10:00am – 2:00pm at the Berlin Senior Center. The event will include tables hosted by various organizations and state agencies that will have useful information and resources available for seniors!
Joe recently hosted “Manufacturing Day at the Capitol” with House Republican Leader Themis Klarides to celebrate the progress Connecticut is making in its efforts to grow manufacturing jobs in Connecticut.
I am sponsoring an essay contest for local middle school students! If you are a 7th or 8th grade student from Berlin or Southington, I am asking you to submit as essay of 250 to 500 words describing one project or initiative that would help improve your community. In these essays, you should include why you think the project is needed and how it will help your town.
You should submit your essay by May 2nd and include your name, address and date of birth or current grade level with your submission. Essays should be emailed to Rep. Aresimowicz at Joe.Aresimowicz@cga.ct.gov with "Essay Contest" in the subject line.

Aresimowicz with the 2015 AARP Legislative Achievement Award during their Local Chapter Meeting at the Mary Our Queen Church Hall in Southington, CT.
I’m truly honored to receive the 2015 AARP Legislative Achievement Award. Currently, more than 600,000 Connecticut residents, mostly small business workers, do not have a retirement savings plan available to them through their employer—and most fear they have not saved enough for retirement. I am proud and grateful to work with organizations like AARP to pass legislation that would make it easier for Connecticut residents to save enough money to live comfortably in their retirement without having to rely on public assistance programs.
