News & Updates from the 50th District

January 8, 2024
Dear Neighbor, 

I hope this finds you well and you had a good holiday season. The last month has been busy around the district as we gear up for the next legislative session, which gavels in on Wednesday, February 7th. 

It has been a busy end to 2023 and I look forward to an ambitious 2024. Here are some highlights from the last few months.

Local Town Hall Meetings
I held open Town Hall Meetings in Ashford, Hampton, Mansfield & Woodstock to hear directly from residents about issues important to the community and talk about the last legislative session.
Brooklyn Middle School Veteran's Ceremony

In November, the Lt. Governor came to Brooklyn and hosted a ceremony at the Brooklyn Middle School celebrating Vietnam & Korean War-era veterans in the Town of Brooklyn.

Learning from the Pomfret Proprietors

I met with the Pomfret Proprietors, Pomfret's Business Association at The Vanilla Bean Café to discuss the last legislative session and community issues. It was a great discussion with active local business and community leaders.

Listening to the UConn Leadership

Right before the holidays, I met with the administration of the University of Connecticut to hear a briefing by President Radenka Maric and other leaders about all aspects of UConn, including its financial position, the success of the Innovation Partnership program, and concerns for the future.

Congrats to CT State Police's Graduating 134th Training Troop

As the Chairman of the Public Safety Committee, I had the privilege to represent the Connecticut General Assembly at the graduation exercises for the 134th Training Troop of the Connecticut State Police. 2 Troopers have been assigned to Troop D, and 4 Troopers have been assigned to Troop C for their field training. 

Congratulations to the new Troopers, and thank you for serving the people of the State of Connecticut.
Town Hall Meeting
Lastly, on Wednesday, January 10th, I will participate in an Education Town Hall meeting surrounding rural education in Regional School District 11 which includes the Parish Hill High School.
