Hartford- State Representative Brian Ohler (R- North Canaan) has been named 2017 “Legislator of the Year” by the Connecticut State Firefighters Association. Ohler was honored Thursday night at the annual Legislative Meeting, hosted by the Connecticut State Firefighters Association, in Wethersfield.

Rep. Ohler said, “I am particularly grateful with this honor from the CT State Firefighters Association. Ensuring that these funds were secured seemed, at times, to be a herculean effort. Minority Leader Rep. Themis Klarides and Rep. Melissa Ziobron, ranking member of the Appropriations Committee guided these initiatives throughout this year’s long and arduous budget session and I am so very grateful for their responsiveness. Working with Rep. Boyd as Co-Chairs of the newly formed Fire/EMS Caucus will inevitably offer a truly bipartisan approach to any new legislation pertaining to the fire service. As of last week, our fire school funding was again targeted by Gov. Malloy. Now is not the time to sit idly by, as our work is never over.”
