In Preston, the discussion touched upon topics such as the legalization of marijuana, education costs, dwindling school populations, municipal grants, tolls and Supreme Court nominations.  In Ledyard, Rep. France and attendees also discussed tolls and education funding, in addition to the state budget, municipal aid, the Special Transportation Fund, a transportation lockbox and constitutional amendments.

France. “I always enjoy our conversations and the opportunity to answer questions about the issues that matter most to those I represent. I can’t do my job without your input, so your opinions are extremely important to me.”
