REP. HILDA SANTIAGO WEIGHS IN ON THE GOVERNOR’S $103 MILLION PROPOSED CUTS
In the Record Journal story below, Rep. Hilda Santiago, some of her colleagues and others weigh in on Governor Malloy’s recent announcement ordering $103 million in emergency cuts. In the story, Rep.

REP. HILDA SANTIAGO CELEBRATES HEAD START’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY AT THE STATE CAPITOL
Rep. Hilda Santiago, together with colleagues and state officials, celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Head Start during a reception at the State Capitol. Head Start is a federal program serving communities across the nation promoting school readiness of young children from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. Hilda lauded Head Start’s important work, as her son, who attended Head Start several years ago, was screened for special needs and received the necessary support from the program. “The most important thing about Head Start is that it involves the parents and their policy council. This is what drives the program. Parents have a stake in what happens in the program.” VIDEO
