I hope you have a fun and safe Memorial Day with family and friends! Please take a moment from your picnics and cookouts to remember why we celebrate this day. Today, and every day, I am thinking of all of those who have lost their lives serving for our country, without whom we would not have our freedom.
Next Tuesday, May 4, the Westport Department of Human Services will be distributing a limited number of USDA Food Boxes at the Westport Center for Senior Activities (WCSA). The contents of the food box is a mix of shelf-stable and perishable food items including fruits, vegetables, dairy, and meats.
Yesterday morning, I attended a press conference that highlighted several legislative proposals which would prevent and end child sexual abuse.
I was joined by the Children's committee chairs, Representative Liz Linehan and Senator Saud Anwar, a bipartisan coalition of representatives, and leaders from nonprofits who dedicated ending child sexual misconduct through proactive policies.
The proposed legislation, which is detailed below, will ensure that every child in Connecticut is protected. They will also help us better understand the prevalence of child sexual misconduct in the state, and what we can do to eliminate it in the future.
