HARTFORD – Area lawmakers, State Reps. Gale Mastrofrancesco (R-80), Lezlye Zupkus (R-89), Craig Fishbein (R-90) and John Fusco (R-81) sent a joint letter on Wednesday to Governor Ned Lamont asking him to host additional Toll ‘Town Hall’ Meetings about his CT2030 Transportation Plan that includes truck-only tolls.
Last week, it was uncovered that the Governor and Democratic lawmakers in Westport were preparing to host a secret meeting about the Governor’s transportation plan. The purpose of the secret meeting was to give anti-toll supporters as little notice as possible about the meeting. The governor and Democratic lawmakers announced this week that the rescheduled meeting in Westport will be open to the public.
In the joint letter to Governor Lamont, Republican lawmakers said, “Not unlike Westport, our districts are concerned about Connecticut’s transportation infrastructure and we would like to give our constituents an opportunity to learn more and ask questions with regard to how CT 2030 will affect them. We believe a Town Hall could be beneficial to better understanding your proposals.”
All the area lawmakers stated they believe this would be a tremendous opportunity for the public to finally learn the specific details on the latest incarnation of a proposed toll system.
