Harford – On May 3, Senator Paul Formica (R-East Lyme) joined fellow state lawmakers hosting the 4th Annual Women Owned Business Day at the CT Capitol to discuss the importance of supporting women entrepreneurs.

“Women-owned businesses bring in more than $15 million in annual revenues to Connecticut,” said Sen. Formica, who served as a member of the event host committee. “These entrepreneurs are vital to job growth and play a leading role in growing our state’s economy. It was an honor to welcome so many business owners to the Capitol in celebration of their accomplishments, their ability to overcome challenges, and their unrelenting contributions to our state.”
