Sen. John Kissel Hears from Windsor Locks Seniors

February 16, 2012

On Feb. 16, State Sen. John A. Kissel visited the Windsor Locks Senior Center to provide area residents with a State Capitol update and to answer questions from taxpayers.

About 50 residents attended Sen. Kissel’s presentation.

“I was honored to speak to area taxpayers and was quite pleased by the turnout,” Sen. Kissel said. “We share the same concerns. We are overtaxed and our government spends too much of our money. That’s why I voted against the largest tax hike in state history. That’s why I am fighting to stop the wasteful spending initiatives at the State Capitol like the nearly $600 million busway from New Britain to Hartford. And that’s why I am fighting to reduce and eliminate the burdensome taxes Connecticut places on gasoline and on social security income. Listening to your thoughts and ideas, I feel, makes me a better legislator. I take your comments and ideas with me to Hartford. I very much enjoyed speaking formally and informally with the attendees, and I hope to return to the senior center very soon.”
