I’ve been working closely for more than a year with the leadership at Branford’s Connecticut Hospice Inc. for a request we made to the State Bond Commission. We got news that they will be receiving a $250,000 grant which will help with much-needed patient communications systems as well as infrastructure repairs. Their commitment and dedication to home and inpatient hospice care is remarkable. I am pleased to have supported this request and delighted to see it approved.
To help you and our neighbors stay up-to-date on the ever-evolving stream of information related to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, my office and I are working to provide news as it develops over social media and by email.
This year, more than ever, it is critical that every Connecticut resident responds to the Census. The most recent data shows Branford's self-response at 68.4% and the entire state at 64.9%. The Census counts every person living in the country – citizens, noncitizens and green-card holders.
I hope you and your loved ones have had a chance to enjoy the nice warm weather and are excited for the days ahead. As we continue to monitor the ever-evolving stream of information related to the pandemic, I am encouraged by Connecticut's declining numbers as well as the overall cooperation from residents.
