FIGHTING FOR OUR COMMUNITY

Wrapping Up the 2017 Legislative Session

As we come to a close here in the State Senate, I want to take a moment and reflect on the busy legislative session that we've had.

This year I worked hard on a number of issues to move the ball forward to make Connecticut a more progressive place.

Thanks to all of you who testified, sent emails and called legislators. Together we raised many important issues, changed some minds, and showed what's possible if we embrace a progressive agenda.

I will continue to fight to get these issues passed in the coming legislative sessions.

This year I fought for:

  • The rights of working people which are under assault by Republicans in the legislature
  • Minimum wage increase
  • Paid Family and Medical Leave
  • Students for a Dream
  • Bridgeport Sanctuary City/Safe Haven Schools
  • Apprenticeship career fair
