Earlier this month, state legislators from across the state came together to celebrate the start of the 2017 Legislation Session at the State Capitol. Following the November elections, both new and returning legislators are sworn into office to serve a two-year term. This year, I had the honor of being sworn in for my fourth term, and I am looking forward to continuing my service on your behalf in Hartford.
On opening day, we heard directly from the governor in the annual “State of the State” address in which he referenced the importance of a predictable economy – I cannot agree more. Without a sustainable, predictable economy businesses will not have the confidence needed to grow jobs in our state. Without these jobs, middle-class families in Connecticut will continue to struggle to make ends meet.
