HARTFORD – State Representatives Charles Ferraro voted no on Wednesday on a union deal to increase the pay and to give out bonuses to unionized lawyers who work for the state Attorney General.

The two-year pay deal for lawyers working for Attorney General’s Office will cost taxpayers $5 million. This includes stipends for department heads in the amount of $6,000 in the first year, $12,000 in the second year and $2000 bonuses for all lawyers.

“This major pay increase is sending the wrong message to Connecticut taxpayers,” said Rep. Ferraro. “We are still seeing job loss in the state and residents leaving, but the majority party thinks we should be handing out pay increases. I was hopeful Governor Ned Lamont would do things differently but this is more of the same from the majority.”

Rep. Ferraro Joins Bipartisan Milford Delegation to Give Testimony in Favor of Yale New Haven Health Systems Purchase of Milford Hospital

ORANGE, CT — Today, State Senator James Maroney (D-Milford) joined State Representatives Kim Rose (D-Milford), Charles Ferraro (R-Orange, Milford, West Haven), and Kathy Kennedy (R-Milford and Orange) to give public testimony to the Office of Health Strategy in favor of allowing the asset purchase agreement of Milford Hospital by Bridgeport Hospital/Yale New Haven Health Systems.

“Milford Hospital is an important asset for area residents,” said Rep. Ferraro. “Losing Milford Hospital would have a significant impact on our communities. The transfer of ownership will save hundreds of jobs, protect the retirements of former employees, and means area residents can get quality healthcare right in our backyards. I hope this transfer is approved.”

Without this purchase agreement, it is likely the Milford Hospital, which is one of the largest employers in Milford, would be forced to close. The purchase agreement would establish a partnership with Bridgeport Hospital/Yale New Haven Health Systems which will equal more job opportunities, expansion of clinical services and streamlined care throughout the region, thanks to a single integrated electronic medical record system.

Under this partnership, Milford Hospital staff will become part of the new, integrated hospital with Bridgeport Hospital. Inpatient/outpatient care will continue from the Milford Campus. The partnership will establish financial stability and job security for employees. It will enable Milford Hospital to chart a course for growth, strengthening its’ ability to serve members of the community. Lawmakers said this is a win-win for patients, the hospital, region and Milford community.
