Derby Coffee Hours

February 21, 2017

I joined the rest of the Derby Legislative Delegation on Friday to kick off our monthly coffee hours with constituents at the Valley Diner.

Over thirty residents packed the Valley Diner to hear from their legislators about the issues shaping the 2017 legislative session and to express their concerns and approval of legislative proposals before the General Assembly. The legislators were all in agreement that their primary focus this session was on the state’s budget. Residents asked questions about the state’s healthcare exchange, veteran issues, affordable housing, and the Governor’s budget proposal.

It’s always great to talk with residents of the 104th district about issues important to the community. As a state representative, my job is to advocate on behalf of my constituents and the feedback received at the coffee hour will help me do just that. I want to thank all the residents who shared their thoughts about the legislative session and I encourage anyone who wasn’t at the coffee hour to reach out to me as I am always available to listen to any comments, questions or concerns.

The Derby lawmakers will be hosting a monthly coffee hour on the third Friday of every month at the Valley Diner from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
