On Wednesday, November 29, Rep. Sampson cohosted a Town Hall Forum at the Southington Municipal Center with Rep. Fusco and Sen. Markley. The event focused on the recently passed compromise state budget plan, which did not win the support of the three legislators.
Rep. Sampson explained the reason behind his vote against the plan. Specifically, he was concerned about the budget’s increased spending as well as its failure to effectively address long-term structural problems within state government. Many attendees were concerned about the impact of the budget on seniors, which Rep. Sampson also addressed, while reaffirming his commitment to lower taxes and advocating for senior citizens and those living on fixed incomes.
