Lisbon Fire Station Groundbreaking Ceremony

Posted on March 6, 2023

On Friday, March 3rd, I was privileged to join members of the Lisbon Fire Department and the local community to break ground at the new Lisbon fire station. The new fire station will not only strengthen the town of Lisbon but will be beneficial to surrounding towns that rely on Lisbon Fire Department for mutual aid as well.

Read Across America 2023- Voluntown Elementary School

Posted on March 2, 2023

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in the Read Across America program once again at the Voluntown Elementary School on Wednesday morning! Having an opportunity to interact with the young people in our district is one of the best parts of this job!

A very concerning concept being raised in the Children’s Committee Public Hearing on Thursday, February 16th.

The intent would be to hold parents/guardians of homeschooled children to a higher DCF “abuse and neglect” investigation standard than those who don’t homeschool.

I find this to be completely unacceptable. I will keep you informed on any developments concerning this legislation.

I am anxious to get back to the building and
