Martin Joins Bipartisan Manufacturing Panel; First Meeting is Friday

January 28, 2015

Bristol Sen. Henri Martin has joined the state legislature’s bipartisan Manufacturing Caucus.

The Manufacturing Caucus was first created in 2012 to bring legislators and business advocates together to advance the interests of the state’s manufacturing industry.

The caucus strives to put forth practical ideas and find workable solutions to the impediments facing Connecticut’s manufacturers and small businesses. Its membership includes 50 lawmakers and 20 industry advocates and business lobbyists.

“As greater Bristol’s state senator, I have the privilege of representing some of the most innovative manufacturers in Connecticut,” Sen. Martin said. “I want to do all I can to help them grow good jobs. I also want to work with Democrats and Republicans at the State Capitol to craft policies which allow future manufacturers to thrive here. Serving with this group of pro-manufacturing legislators and industry experts will help me to be a strong voice for our region’s economic engines.”

The caucus has scheduled its first meeting of 2015 for 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 30 at the Legislative Office Building.

Martin encouraged area residents to contact him with any ideas or concerns about Connecticut’s manufacturing industry. He can be reached at 860-240-0022 or at [email protected].
