Securing Funds for Our Communities

I am proud to announce that last week the State Bond Commission approved over $16 million to support several projects in Bridgeport and Trumbull.

As Democratic Senate co-chair of the General Bonding Subcommittee of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee, I am proud to secure funding for these excellent projects in my district and across the state. Thanks to this funding, our local museums, schools, and senior housing facilities can now move forward with making much-needed improvements so that residents of Bridgeport and Trumbull may continue to enjoy their services for many more years.
