Last week I had the pleasure of joining two of my constituents who host a local television show. They accommodate many different guests from all ends of the political spectrum, including local and state officials. The show often focuses on the issues facing Connecticut residents and highlights faced by North-Central Connecticut residents.

CT Valley Views, with host Susan Patricelli-Regan and produced by Bill Regan, is a guest interview series developed for community television to educate and inform North-Central Connecticut residents regarding municipal leadership, current affairs, and political and policy topics. They always produce an informative show and last week I was honored to be a part of it.

On the show we discussed many different issues facing Connecticut including transportation, Connecticut’s bond rating, Hartford’s current fiscal situation and some of the legislation that I worked on in the Judiciary Committee during the 2018 Legislative Session.

The show was hosted at the Connecticut Historical Society in Hartford, which was very impressive. This is a beautiful building which homes a nonprofit, educational center; in fact it is one of the oldest historical societies in the country. The Connecticut Historical Society consists of a museum, library and the Edgar F. Waterman Research Center that are open to the public. If anyone is looking for a day trip with their children and family this summer I would encourage you to go online at and look at what the historical society has to offer.

You can watch this segment of CT Valley views on their website at or tune in to Public Access Channel 15 on June 22nd and June 23rd at 6:00 p.m., or on June 30th at 9:30 a.m.
