July 19, 2017

Meriden – This Friday (July 21) at 11 a.m., Sen. Len Suzio will host a rally at the Meriden Green Amphitheater (77 State Street) to call upon the Connecticut Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore of the State Senate to sign an emergency certification for the Legislature to pass a balanced budget as soon as possible.

“Vital services for thousands of our neediest citizens of all ages in greater Meriden and throughout Connecticut are being suspended and slashed due to the failure of the legislature to pass a budget,” Sen. Suzio said. “Local budgets are also in limbo.  Our message is simple: We want legislative leaders to do their jobs and pass a Connecticut budget.”

Suzio said Friday’s event, which is open to the public, will launch a community-based petition drive urging state lawmakers to pass a budget.

Sen. Suzio can be reached at 800-842-1421 and at [email protected].
