Standing Up For You!

Promoting Water Safety

May is Water Safety Month in Connecticut. It was a great pleasure to welcome Wolfpit Elementary School Principal Dr. Jenna Masone who is working hard on the issue along with Karen Cohn, co-founder of the ZAC Foundation, to the State Capitol. They have partnered with Stew Leonard III Children's Charities and the Connecticut Commission on Women, Children and Seniors to better educate children, caregivers and public safety personnel about water safety.
 

Supporting Manufacturers

Duff speaks to manucaturers

This week, I spoke to a group of Connecticut manufacturers during Manufacturing Innovation Day at the State Capitol. In the Senate, we are working to ensure that our next generation of workers is trained for careers in advanced manufacturing.

As Sikorsky, Pratt and Whitney, Electric Boat and their numerous subcontractors and suppliers all plan for new projects or increased production, our investments in Connecticut residents will boost our economy and make sure that a generation of workers have the skills they need to fill these jobs.
