State Representative Kim Rose (D-Milford) 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 supported this agreement because I understand how critical this company is, especially to us here at home. We have the highest number of Sikorsky suppliers in the state in Milford - at least 27 that have important partnerships with this company. This deal will increase their spending with suppliers, which means more economic benefits to our city."
