Following Up on the State Budget

In order to build a state budget that’s better for the local community, I invited residents in the 22nd Senatorial District to a public listening forum at the Burroughs Community Center in Bridgeport last week.

Sen. Moore's budget listening tour

About a dozen local residents shared their concerns and ideas on how to make the budget work for the Bridgeport community, including securing funding for education, school health programs, and environmental issues.

I’d like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to this important discussion.

Like you, I am concerned about the impact that the governor’s proposed budget could have on Monroe, Trumbull and Bridgeport. I cannot emphasize enough that the governor’s proposed budget is just that—a proposal —and that the legislature (which is a separate branch of government with its own duties and powers) has begun its own budget-making process. There is still months of work to do and public voices to be heard.

For those of you who couldn’t attend my Bridgeport listening tour, I encourage you to make your voice heard by contacting my office and submitting written testimony, or by coming to one of my upcoming forums: Tuesday, March 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Trumbull Town Hall, 5866 Main St., Trumbull; or Tuesday, March 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Monroe Town Hall, 7 Fan Hill Rd., Monroe.

Together we can make a state budget that is better than what the governor has proposed.
