STRATFORD – Members of the Stratford legislative delegation, joined by the Stratford Mayor’s office, took the state’s new economic development commissioner on a tour of Stratford on Tuesday April 30, 2019.
Senator Kevin Kelly, Representative Ben McGorty, Representative Phil Young, and Stratford Mayor Laura Hoydick met with Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner David Lehman to tour Stratford’s Army Engine Plant, the Shakespeare Theater property, the Contract Plating Company site, the Raymark Ballfield site, the Stratford Center site, and Two Roads Brewery.
“This was a great opportunity for the new administration’s economic and development chief to learn about Stratford’s successes and our potential for even more growth,” said Sen. Kelly. “Stratford is a beautiful town filled with many people who have worked hard to support and encourage economic development and job growth throughout the entire region. The Stratford delegation looks forward to continuing our efforts to advocate for our town and surrounding communities. I want to thank the Commissioner for taking the time to visit and learn more about our community.”
