LETTER: Zupkus reaches out to constituents

I’d like to thank everyone who attended my recent legislative session “wrap-up” at Town Hall in Bethany, where most folks expressed concern over the direction in which our state is headed.


Topics of discussion varied, ranging from gun-related proposals and laws to improving the system that provides armed forces personnel stationed overseas an opportunity to vote. Most talk, however, centered on the state’s shaky finances and its struggling economy.


That Connecticut spends and borrows too much money were facts upon which everyone seemed to agree, and several of the attendees offered examples of where government can save money. Others provided ideas on how to make our state friendlier to the business community—a subject of particular concern at a time when governors from other states have stepped up their pursuit of Connecticut-based companies fed up with the regulatory environment here.


There’s no doubt our state will face significant challenges in the months and years ahead, but I find it encouraging to hear from people such as those in Bethany who are not only concerned about our state’s direction, but also hold ideas and a willingness to help change the course.


In the coming months I encourage anyone with questions, ideas or concerns about state government to contact my office at 800-842-1423 or [email protected].
