Senator Boucher Encourages Participation in 4th Annual Women-Owned Business Day at the Capitol

State Senator Toni Boucher (R-26) today said she hopes to see a large turnout for Women-Owned Business Day on Wednesday in Hartford. She encouraged businesswomen throughout the state to attend the event.

“Women are a huge business and economic force in the state of Connecticut,” Sen. Boucher said. “Lawmakers need to see their faces and hear their stories. We need to know how the policy and financial decisions we make in Hartford impact these business owners and what we can do to help them grow.”

May 3 is the 4th Annual Women-Owned Business Day, which provides business owners with the opportunity to meet legislators and national thought leaders, network with other business women, and learn about microloan opportunities.

The Women’s Business Development Council said that business owned by women account for $15 million in annual revenues in Connecticut.

“I look forward to meeting with these incredible business owners and hope that the 26th Senatorial District is well-represented,” Sen. Boucher said. “I think people will be surprised just how many businesses in our state are owned by women.”
