HARTFORD – Danbury Area legislators have sent a formal request to the governor’s office to call for a “Town Hall” meeting regarding his administration’s CT2030 transportation plan. State Representatives Rich Smith (R-108), Bill Buckbee (R-67), and Stephen Harding (R-107) penned a letter to Governor Lamont on Tuesday, January 8, asking that a local Town Hall meeting be held so that Danbury area residents could have an opportunity to hear details of the plan and express their concerns or ask questions.
According to the representatives, on Sunday, January 12, the governor held a Town Hall meeting in Westport to discuss his state-wide transportation plan. Consequently, there should be similar efforts made by the administration to conduct these meetings in other parts of the state.
“It is critical that residents in my District, and the surrounding towns, have the same opportunities to ask questions about tolls and the impact it will have on them, as those living in the shoreline districts – especially since Rhode Island’s truck only tolls plan is currently being litigated in Federal Court,” said Rep. Smith.
