Senator Beth Bye Recognized Again as Best Community Leader

WEST HARTFORD—For the second time, state Senator Beth Bye (D-West Hartford) has been named as Hartford Magazine’s top “Community Leader” in an online survey of 207,000 readers covering 200 different categories.

“Each year we poll our readers for the Best of Hartford in scores of categories covering bars, restaurants, shopping, health, entertainment and more. Thousands of people vote and we carefully tally the results,” according to the magazine website. “Deputy Majority Leader Beth Bye of West Hartford is the winner in our always hotly contested community leader category.”

“Connecticut has an informed and educated electorate, so I really appreciate the support from everyone who takes the time to follow public policy in Connecticut and who voted for me,” Sen. Bye said. “I’m very proud of my work encouraging economic development, like high-speed broadband networks, that keeps our economy moving forward. I’m also not afraid to put myself out there on important and sometimes controversial issues, whether it be the minimum wage, paid family medical leave, open government, equal rights for women and minorities, or educational opportunities for all. I’m happy the public supports my work in Hartford.”

Hartford Magazine is delivered to more than 65,000 residents in 16 towns, including Manchester, Glastonbury, Windsor, Newington, Hartford, West Hartford and South Windsor.
