You may have heard last week that my $2.5 million bonding request for groundwater and soil remediation at the Raymark superfund site was added to the State Bond Commission's meeting agenda. Earlier today, the Commission held its meeting to vote on the allocation of the requested funds for our community and it was approved.
State Representative Joseph P. Gresko (D- 121st District) and State Representative Phil Young (D- 120th District) applaud the completion of the reconstruction of the Interstate-95 Exit 33 interchange in Stratford.
The Great Meadow Marsh project will restore significantly degraded coastal marsh habitat and result in improved wildlife habitat. I am very pleased to know that as part of this project, Audubon Connecticut will seek to employ youth from the Bridgeport / Stratford area to help educate people about the benefits this project will bring to our community.
Earlier this month, we honored the life and work of late State Rep. Terry Backer by renaming a stretch of Route 113 in Stratford the "State Representative Terrance E. Backer Memorial Highway".
We were honored to be joined by members of Rep. Backer's family, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, and former colleagues and advocates who worked with him.
