During a Manufacturing Caucus public hearing, CT State Rep. Gail Lavielle (R-Wilton, Norwalk, Westport) discussed the need for skilled workers in manufacturing and how Connecticut must make this a priority. Lucia Furman, a small business owner, also made it clear that forced school regionalization would undoubtedly affect the quality of education in Connecticut.
