Rep. Laura Devlin: Heat Kills’ Signs goes up in Trumbull

Posted on August 8, 2018 by jdooley


 Brings Safety Awareness to Community

TRUMBULL – State Reps. Laura Devlin (R-134), David Rutigliano (R-123) and Ben McGorty (R-122) along with Trumbull First Selectwoman Vicki Tesoro, the Trumbull Police Department and Trumbull Public Works Department, the Stop and Shop management team and members of Trumbull Animal Group (TAG) were present for the unveiling of the newest ‘Heat Kills – If you love ’em, don’t leave ’em’ awareness program sign installed at the entrance to the Stop and Shop Plaza off of Quality Road.

Last summer, the Trumbull State Representatives kicked this Public Safety Awareness Program to remind residents about the dangers of leaving children and animals in cars. The goal is recruit businesses throughout Trumbull put up signage and window stickers to spread the word about keeping children and animals safe.

Within the last week, Rep. Devlin has received word from the Westfield Mall in Trumbull that they will also display ‘Heat Kills’ signage in the mall parking lot.

Rep. Devlin said, “These ‘Heat Kills – If you love ’em, don’t leave ’em’ signs and stickers give people an easy way to call the Trumbull police if they see a child or pet in a hot car while they are out around town. I want to thank Stop and Shop for participating in this awareness program.”

‘This is great community program that will save lives. I ask anyone out there to use their good judgment and protect the welfare of your children and pets,” said Rep. Rutigliano.

First Selectwoman Vicki Tesoro said, “This is an important public service program for the Town of Trumbull sponsored by our State Representatives and I support any initiative that helps keep our children and pets safe.”


McGorty said, “I will continue to work with my colleagues to recruit businesses to put signs and stickers at their businesses as a public safety reminder.”

All three legislators said they supported a bill this legislative session which gives immunity to any ‘Good Samaritan’ who enters the car by force and protects the ‘Good Samaritan’ against any potential civil damages or criminal penalties when rendering aid.

State Rep. Devlin Opposes Gov. Malloy Tolls Study

Posted on July 17, 2018 by jdooley


Today, Governor Malloy determined that he is the only branch of government that matters and has thwarted the will of the state legislature and the people of Connecticut.

During the last session, the pro-tolls forces lacked the necessary votes in the General Assembly to push through a tolls plan or a proposal to study tolls which would lead to implementation.

So instead Governor Malloy today used his executive power today to call on CT DOT to study implementing tolls in CT and using $10 million in taxpayers dollars to do it. He plans to borrow the $10 million.

I call on the State Bond Commission which meets on July 25th to reject this request for toll study funds.

A governor with 5 months left in office should not be permitted to make a $10 million appropriation that the legislature has already rejected.
