Senator Herron Keyon Gaston Working on Behalf of Success Village Residents

Senator Herron Keyon Gaston, D-Bridgeport and Stratford, released the following statement Monday regarding an ongoing hot water disruption at Success Village:

“The boiler situation at Success Village is at the top of my mind, even as I advocate for Bridgeport and Stratford in the final hours of the legislative session. The loss of hot water affecting 2,000 of my constituents is frankly unacceptable.

“To that end, I have been in near constant contact with the state Housing Department and have been in touch with civic leaders and residents both of Bridgeport and Stratford, driving conversations to explore any and every avenue to ensure that hot water is restored as soon as humanly possible.

“This is a complex set of circumstances that will require a wide range of community partners to include the city of Bridgeport and the town of Stratford and their leadership.

“Residents of Success Village can be sure that I will do everything in my power to advocate for resources to repair or replace the affected infrastructure.”
