I would like to take a moment to wish you and your family a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving. For me, this was always a weekend of family, food and fellowship. It is my hope that you will also be able to celebrate this uniquely American holiday with family and friends by your side/ and give thanks for all the gifts we have been blessed with this year.
Also, if you are planning to start shopping for gifts this weekend, please try to shop locally this season and support our small businesses. Saturday, November 30th is the tenth annual nationwide Small Business Saturday. This day is meant to bring attention to the important movement towards small businesses and to support entrepreneurs in our communities. We have a number of great shops and restaurants across Southeastern Connecticut that you can visit.

HARTFORD – Today, in light of continuing concerns over the spread of the virus Eastern Equine Encephalitis, a coalition of legislators led by State Senators Norm Needleman (D-Essex) and Paul Formica (R-East Lyme) addressed a letter to Governor Ned Lamont, requesting for his administration to review and consider selective use of mosquito pesticides in areas with high EEE activity. This week, a second Shoreline resident passed away after contracting EEE; the elected officials believe more could be done to protect the public before the threat fully subsides.
Legislators who signed the letter include State Senators Cathy Osten (D-Sprague) and Heather Somers (R-Groton) and State Representatives Tim Ackert (R-Coventry), Devin Carney (R-Old Saybrook), Christie Carpino (R-Cromwell), Holly Cheeseman (R-Niantic), Christine Conley (D-Groton), Joe de la Cruz (D-Groton), Mike France (R-Ledyard), Robin Green (R-Marlborough), Irene Haines (R-East Hampton), Jesse MacLachlan (R-Westbrook), Kathleen McCarty (R-Waterford), Anthony Nolan (D-New London), Linda Orange (D-Colchester), Emmett Riley (D-Norwich), Kate Rotella (D-North Stonington) and Kevin Ryan (D-Montville).
