PHOTO BRIEF: Senator Martin and Representative Petit Meet Residents at Bolo Bakery

July 3, 2017


State Senator Henri Martin (R-31) and Representative William Petit (R-22) recently met with constituents at Bolo Bakery in Plainville to discuss the 2017 legislative session.

“While we still don’t have a state budget, we talked about the numerous balanced, no tax increase budgets proposed by Republicans and the inherent problems with trying to install tolls on state highways,” Sen. Martin said. “We also got to hear what they are concerned about and what they think we should do in Hartford.”

“Getting feedback from the people we serve is vital to our mission,” Rep. Petit said. “The majority of our discussion focused on the state budget crisis. We were elected to represent the best interest of the people in our district, who would like to see us adopt a state budget that does not include tax increases. House Republicans have created 3 balanced budgets this year alone, which do not include tax increases.”

Sen. Martin represents the communities of Bristol, Harwinton, Plainville, Plymouth, and Thomaston.

Rep. Petit serves the communities of Plainville and New Britain.
