BRIDGEPORT – State Representative Mitch Bolinsky (R-Newtown) participated in the Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging’s (SWCAA) annual Legislative Breakfast. The breakfast meeting was held in partnership with the Greater Bridgeport Elder Service Council in Bridgeport. Bolinsky was joined by several members of the General Assembly to provide the legislative update.
Rep. Bolinsky stated, “It was an honor to address and answer questions from so many care providers and be able to draw on the expertise of Aging Committee Chairman, Senator Kevin Kelly, Vice-Chair, Senator Tony Hwang and fellow Newtown Rep., JP Sredzinski, in this well attended forum.”
According to Bolinsky, the legislative panel discussed some very timely issues, legislation and service needs affecting older adults, while also taking questions from members and nonprofits of aging services organizations that are from our region.
