Attention college students - the Connecticut General Assembly is currently accepting applications for the Legislative Internship Program through November 1.
This internship provides an opportunity to learn about the state legislature, and the roles of lawmakers in creating laws that impact us everyday.
Connecticut-based Dalio Education recently released a report it commissioned that focused on "disconnected and at-risk youth" and found more than 63,000 young adults were disconnected, and 56,000 students were at risk between 2021 and 2022, according to the compiled data.
In May, we tragically lost a true pillar of our greater Vernon community – Bryan Flint Sr.
To honor Bryan's spirit of giving to his community, the Vernon Legislative Delegation will host a Community Food Drive in his memory to benefit The Cornerstone Foundation where he served as the deputy director.
The main food drive will be held on Oct. 21 from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at St. Bernard Church at 25 St. Bernard Terrace in Vernon.
Update! The ArrayRx program is now OPEN.
I highly encourage you to take advantage of this free program that can save Connecticut residents up to 80% off certain prescriptions at nearly all pharmacies in the state. There's no cost, age restriction or income restriction to join. To sign up, please click here.
Connecticut was lost in the forest at the end of the presidential primary season. During Tuesday’s Special Session, we took this bipartisan proposal and moved the state's presidential primary up by four weeks. This means the presidential primary will occur on the first Tuesday in April.
