Taking Your Opinions Into the 2018 Session

Since first being elected to the Connecticut State Senate in 2014, I have made constituent outreach my top priority. In addition to hosting more than 25 in-district office hours, attended by hundreds of residents, I have had numerous conversations with constituents and local business owners. Throughout last year, I invited you to participate in my constituent survey and tell me about what you think we can be doing to make Connecticut an even better place to live and work. The input I receive at office hours and in this survey is invaluable when building a legislative agenda and fighting for the issues that are important to you in 2018. I want to share with you the responses that I received from hundreds of constituents who filled out the survey.

Your input is invaluable in guiding my work in the legislature, and I will keep your survey responses in mind as I plan and pursue a legislative agenda for the 2018 legislative session. I will continue seeking your advice and suggestions about the important ways we can work together to move Connecticut forward. Please do not hesitate to contact my office with your ideas and concerns.
