The Connecticut General Assembly is scheduled to return for the regular legislative session the first week of February and in preparation, I plan to hold Office Hours and Town Hall events to meet directly with constituents to better inform myself on what is important to the residents of Northeastern Connecticut. I have been spending time this fall meeting with local businesses, municipal leaders, hospital administration, schools, and organizations to better connect the needs of our region with the government bureaucracy in Hartford.
The House was in Special Session this past Monday to debate the Governor's request to extend his declaration of emergency surrounding the COVID-19 epidemic. A good summary of the session can be found here.
While I am looking forward to the Pomfret Lions event on Monday, October 11th at Lapsley Orchard, I hope that I will not have to kiss a goat. More info can be found below.
