During these difficult times, I’ve been honored to serve the people of the 2nd District. The current pandemic has been an unprecedented challenge requiring new solutions. Throughout it all I’ve been proud of how our towns have come together. To support our towns, I’ve been working hard to help connect residents and local businesses to resources.
I send out daily COVID-19 updates. I’ve helped organize food drives for area food banks. I delivered 250 KN95 masks directly to the Candlewood Lake Authority Marine Patrol for the 2020 boating season. I joined some of my colleagues and visited area nursing and group homes to promote health care protections for residents and workers. I’ve even instituted a virtual weekly story time – because I know parents are desperately looking for activities for their kids.
In 2019 I supported a balanced budget that increased our rainy day fund; giving us $2.5 billion to weather a recession, putting us in a better place and on stronger footing during the pandemic. Throughout all of this…I’ve been proud to be your State Representative and with your help and support we’ll continue the work we’ve started.
