State Representative Chris Perone (D-Norwalk) is pleased the General Assembly has approved a deal that Sikorsky Aircraft, which has made its home in Stratford since 1929, will remain here until at least 2032. “I am grateful and proud that this initiative has been passed in both chambers which will save thousands of jobs throughout Connecticut, including jobs in Norwalk and throughout the state,” said Rep. Perone. “This is very good news for our state and local economies, and it is vital to ensuring a positive, economic future for the state of Connecticut.”
