Visits Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Roxbury & Woodbury
State Senator Rob Kane (R-32) said he was honored to accompany Lieutenant Governor Michael Fedele during his recent visit to four local communities in his district.

“It was my pleasure to show the Lieutenant Governor firsthand what our beautiful area of the state has to offer, and to introduce him to some of the wonderful people I have been fortunate enough to get to know during my time as a state senator. Every town in the 32nd District is unique and helps shape the character of our state, but there are not enough hours in the day to visit them all in one trip. Of course, we will welcome the Lieutenant Governor back to the district whenever his extremely busy schedule allows him to visit,” said Senator Kane.

Lieutenant Governor Fedele visited Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Roxbury and Woodbury on Tuesday, September 29th as part of his ongoing tour of all 169 Connecticut towns and cities. State Representative Arthur O’Neill (R-69) joined the Lieutenant Governor and Senator Kane Bridgewater and Roxbury, two towns he represents in the House of Representatives.

“The tour of Senator Kane’s district was a terrific experience. This was an opportunity for me to see the beautiful towns of Bridgewater, Roxbury, Woodbury and Bethlehem: to meet small business owners, local officials, sample the wonderful produce grown at March Farms and see first hand the great education experiences our FFA students are getting at Nonnewaug High Schools Agri-science department. Connecticut is truly blessed with the diversity and richness of its citizens and small businesses,” said Lieutenant Governor Fedele.

Lieutenant Governor Fedele began his day visiting the fourth grade at Burnham Elementary School in Bridgewater where he, Senator Kane and Representative O’Neill participated in the students’ weekly flag raising ceremony. In Roxbury, the Lieutenant Governor, Senator Kane and Representative O’Neill spoke with area residents at the local post office, Roxbury General Market, and the First National Bank of Litchfield. During their visit to Woodbury, Lieutenant Governor Fedele and Senator Kane spent some time with members of the Nonnewaug High School FFA program, which Senator Kane characterized as an “awesome opportunity for students to obtain hands-on experience handling animals and growing food.” Lieutenant Governor Michael Fedele and Senator Kane ended their day with a visit to March Farm, now in its fourth generation, in Bethlehem.
