State Senator Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford & Shelton), State Representatives Ben McGorty (R-Shelton) and Jason Perillo (R-Shelton) held a town hall for Shelton residents on Monday, March 20 to discuss concerns facing the state legislature this session.
“The truth is, middle-class families in Connecticut are still struggling and that is exactly what I heard last night and what we saw last week with headlines like, ‘job growth in Connecticut remains flat’. Not to mention Governor Malloy’s budget proposal, that has the potential to devastate the day-to-day life of thousands of families,” said Sen. Kelly. “I think it is important for us to listen to these concerns because at the end of the day, these are the people we were elected to represent. Despite what the headlines may read, we don’t have to be satisfied with the status quo; we do have a chance to put our state back on the map. Hope and opportunity do have a place in Connecticut – those are the messages that I want my constituents to listen to.”
