FAIRFIELD – State Representatives Brenda Kupchick (R-132) and Laura Devlin (R-134) hosted a series of legislative coffee hours where they talked about the 2019 session, listened to residents and took dozens of questions about issues impacting the state, especially Fairfield residents.

The Fairfield lawmakers talked briefly with residents about the current legislative session that started on January 9th and discussed the major issues to be debated in the General Assembly this session. They held legislative coffee sessions at both Panera Bread and Las Vetas.

Rep. Kupchick said, “We certainly have our work cut out for us this legislative session. It is more important than ever that we hear from Fairfielders to express their concerns so we can bring their issues to Hartford.”

“I will continue to be a strong voice for my constituents and will work to create a sustainable and predictable state government that we can trust and afford,” said Rep. Devlin.

A majority of the conversation centered around three major topics the state budget, tolls, and the state of our economy. In addition, residents expressed their concerns about the Metro-North rail line and its reliability.
