Dear Neighbor,

I am pleased to share with you this update on the recently concluded legislative session.

Each year brings a new set of challenges, and the 2015 session was no different. In the face of a significant budget deficit and the need to encourage economic growth, my colleagues and I have passed a balanced budget that provides the framework for a once-in-a-generation investment in our transportation infrastructure, which will spur more growth in our economy and create thousands of jobs. The result of all this will improve quality of life for residents who use our roads and rail system.

I take great pride in two recent infrastructure projects, which I was actively involved in securing for West Hartford, that will increase safety and add to the beauty for which our town is justly renowned.

The first project includes safety improvements to the area of I-84 known as the “S-Curves.” The improvements are an effort to reduce the number of accidents that have only grown more common in that area of the highway.

Secondly, the Department of Transportation (DOT) has granted funding for aesthetic improvements to the bridge on New Britain Ave, a bridge that over the years has become an eyesore.

I hope you find the enclosed information helpful and will feel free to call or email me for any reason, legislative or otherwise. It is my pleasure and honor to serve as your state representative and I welcome the opportunity to hear from you.
