“I always appreciate the opportunity to meet face-to-face with constituents so that we can discuss their concerns and share ideas about how we can best address the issues facing Connecticut. I thoroughly enjoyed the public forum at Seymour Town Hall, and I am grateful to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to meet with us,” said Senator Kane, urging those who could not attend to contact him at his legislative office in Hartford at 1-800-842-1421, or via e-mail to [email protected].

“I really appreciate all the folks who took the time and came to town hall to let me know what they are thinking and which issues are important to them. It really helps me better represent our community,” said Representative Conroy. “I encourage anyone who wanted to attend last evening, but couldn’t make it, to please call me at 203-888-1300 to set up a time to meet.”

Topics discussed at the public forum included the state government budget deficit, business taxes, unfunded state mandates on municipalities and businesses, healthcare insurance, energy costs, alternative energy, the state’s clean energy fund, fishing and hunting license fees, brownfield clean-up, the LPN program, and the local train station project.
