Sen. Suzio: “I am working to protect people’s hard-earned tax dollars.”

January 12, 2017


Approximately 60 taxpayers attended Sen. Len Suzio’s Jan. 11 community forum at the Meriden Public Library.

Sen. Suzio answered questions from taxpayers and outlined his priorities for the 2017 legislative session, which include:

  • De-funding the state’s Mileage Tax study
  • Restoring the funding cuts made to the Honor Guard services at veterans’ funerals
  • Reforming the state’s flawed early prison release program
  • Exempting Social Security income from the state income tax.

“I appreciate the feedback, the give-and-take, and the ideas that the people of our region have in moving our state forward,” Suzio said. “I am working to protect people’s hard-earned tax dollars, and I will be a strong voice for them at the State Capitol.”

Suzio will hold additional community forums on Wed. Jan. 25 in Middletown at the Russell Library’s Hubbard Room from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Mon., Jan. 30 at the Middlefield Community Center from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and Tues., Jan. 31 at the Cheshire Town Hall Council Chambers from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Suzio urged taxpayers to reach out to him anytime at [email protected] or at 800 842-1421.
