Both lawmakers met with local seniors to discuss ongoing issues facing the state’s aging population and the Colebrook community.

“I always enjoy engaging with constituents and talking about their ideas to better Connecticut,” said Sen. Witkos. “This meeting was a great opportunity to listen to people’s concerns, discuss how new laws will impact our community, and talk about our legislative priorities. I thank the Colebrook Senior Center for hosting such a successful educational event.”

“As a representative of the people of Northwest Connecticut, this town hall-style meeting in Colebrook was an opportunity to gather ideas and concerns, and bring them back to Hartford,” Rep. Case said. “They did not fall on deaf ears. I want to thank everyone who came out and thank the Senior Center for hosting us.”

During the meeting, attendees expressed serious concerns about local gas prices, common core, and the return on investment of the governor’s First Five job creation initiative.
