WINSTED — State Rep. Jay Case on Monday joined state and local officials in opening the Holabird Avenue bride to traffic. Case, who represents the 63rd House District, was instrumental in securing funding to repair the bridge that’s considered critical not only to residents in the area, but also business owners and first responders. The project took roughly two years to complete. Case was joined by members of the town’s Board of Selectmen, town manager, and state Sen. Craig Miner. Former state representative David Scribner, who served as chairman of the legislature’s Transportation Bonding Subcommittee, was also on hand for the event. Scribner worked with Case to secure the funding after Winsted’s state representative brought him to town to look at the bridge.

HARTFORD – A local lobbyist organization hosted a day-long workshop at the Lyceum to help provide pointers on how the general public can be involved in the legislative process. State Representative Jay Case (R-Winsted) was invited to provide insight on how to engage in the state legislature’s public hearings.

“Having more opinions about a potential law helps a committee’s membership come to a decision on whether or not a concept moves forward in the legislative process. Often, those who come to testify during a public hearing are seen as a valuable resource and any educational facts that can be provided that help stress points being made are always welcome,” stated Rep. Case. “If you can’t be present at a public hearing, then there is always the option to submit written testimony.”
