Kelly: Connecticut is turning a corner. Restrictions on democracy must be lifted too.

March 15, 2021

Today Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released the following statement on the Governor’s announcement that Connecticut will be able to accelerate its vaccination schedule as vaccine providers increase supplies:


“Connecticut is turning a corner. More vaccines are coming. Many business restrictions are going to be lifted on Friday. This is a week full of big changes and good news. As Connecticut families move forward, so too should state government. Public participation in the legislative process, and the ability of the legislature to make policy, has been limited over the last year. Today’s good news and Friday’s reopening makes it ever more clear that it’s past time to give the public back their voice at the State Capitol. People are getting vaccinated, the private sector is reopening, restrictions on democracy must be lifted too.”
