$$ for Stonington applauded by Somers, Howard

April 12, 2023

State Sen. Heather Somers and Rep. Greg Howard applauded the State Bond Commission’s Apr. 6 approval of  $250,000 for upgrades to the Town Dock North Pier in Stonington.

“We personally requested this key funding for the Town Dock North Pier, so we are grateful to Gov. Lamont for including it on the Bond Commission agenda,” Somers and Howard said. “The commercial fishermen that we represent from Stonington are an integral part of Southeastern Connecticut’s way of life since before there were colonies. Local families going back generations have worked the sea to provide fresh seafood and feed the Eastern seaboard. These small proud family businesses are now on the verge of closing forever. We as policymakers must be focused on helping commercial fishermen prosper in our state again. We must continue passing funding and policy measures like this which nurture and grow this industry.”
