I hope you are enjoying being a part of our great Elm City. 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. Despite a serious budget deficit and the need to encourage economic growth, my colleagues and I passed a balanced budget that provides property and car tax relief for middle-class families and small businesses, consumer protections and programs that empowers Connecticut families. It is vital to keep our funding promise to cities and municipalities.
We also created 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.
In addition to delivering property and car tax relief, we passed legislation that will continue to improve our city. In New Haven, we have funded many afterschool and summer youth programs. As your legislator, I am always fighting to improve our city. We have restored critical funding to job training as well as sustainable energy. Investments in youth violence prevention and protecting arts and humanities, continues to be a proud accomplishment for our community.
I hope you continue to read and learn more about this legislative session. It is my pleasure to serve you and your loved ones. I look forward to us working hard together and making a better future for ourselves and our families.
