Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Thank you for your support. It has been an honor to represent you in the General Assembly for another term. There have been many intensely debated issues this legislative session and it has been a privilege to represent the people of Colchester, Lebanon, Mansfield and Windham in each of those discussions.

We continued to make important investments in Connecticut’s Small Business Express Program, which has succeeded in helping to grow our small business community. The property tax burden has also remained a primary concern for many small businesses, and thankfully we worked to increase municipal aid in order to ease property taxes.

We have also made historic investments in our transportation system and increased Education Cost Sharing (ECS) funding for many cities and towns. These investments are critical to growing our economy as businesses will not come to Connecticut if their employees cannot get to work in a safe and timely manner and if we do not have an educated workforce ready to fill 21st century jobs.

Sometimes illness or difficulty with transportation can make it hard to get to the pharmacy to refill a monthly prescription. It also can be a challenge if you are heading south for the winter and need your medications. This session I introduced legislation that allows you to have a three-month supply of a prescription so you don’t have to worry about getting to the pharmacy each month. (Co-pays and other insurance restrictions will still apply.)

I hope you find this information to be of use and please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have any questions.
