ORANGE – State Representatives Themis Klarides, Charles Ferraro, and Kathy Kennedy hosted a legislative office hour on Monday night at the Case Memorial Library where they talked about the 2019 session, listened to residents and took dozens of questions about issues impacting the state.
The lawmakers talked briefly about the current legislative session that started on January 9th and gave residents a handout of the most recent major issues report that is produced by the nonpartisan Office of Legislative Research – residents can find the report by visiting www.cga.ct.gov/olr.
A majority of the conversation centered around three major topics the state budget, tolls, and the legalization of marijuana. In addition, residents expressed their concerns about the cost of electricity.
“Hosting office hours to hear from constituents is one of the best ways for us to connect with residents and to learn more about issues impacting our districts,” said Rep. Klarides. “I will continue to host frequent office hours throughout the session to give residents the opportunity to come to talk to me directly. But, if you can’t make one of my office hours please contact me at Themis.Klarides@housegop.ct.gov.”
