TRUMBULL- Trumbull State Reps. David Rutigliano (R-123), Laura Devlin (R-134) and Ben McGorty (R-122) hosted a “Coffee Hour with Your Legislators” event at Chip’s Family Restaurant in Trumbull on June 24th.
During the evening meet and greet with diners the three Trumbull state representatives listened to Trumbull residents who shared their concerns on a variety of issues. The issues discussed included the additional tax burdens on Trumbull residents anticipated by the new state budget passed by the majority party and agreed to by Governor Lamont.
