Rally Against Tolls – THIS SATURDAY 5/18

Posted on May 15, 2019 by admin


Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Last month, Democratic members of the Transportation Committee voted in favor of three-toll related proposals. Final passage of these bills (by the House and Senate) would begin the process of placing electronic toll gantries on our highways. The Governor’s proposal involves up to 50 gantries on I-84, I-91, I-95 and the Merritt Parkway, other proposals would allow tolls to be expanded to any other limited access highway, making us one of the most heavily tolled states in the country.

We are asking you to spread the word and reach out to family, friends, neighbors, and anyone else who doesn’t agree with the governor and majority party that tolls are the answer to our transportation related issues.

On Saturday, May 18th, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. there will be a Rally Against Tolls on the North Lawn of the State Capitol.

North Central Tourism Brochure Swap – May 24th

Posted on May 13, 2019 by admin


Dear Friends & Neighbors,

As a member of the Legislature’s Tourism Caucus, I have focused on growing awareness of the attractions and business in our area of the state. To further that goal I will be hosting a Brochure Swap in conjunction with the New England Air Museum, the Bradley Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Central Regional Tourism District.

Brochure Swap Day

Friday, May 24th

8:00 a.m. -10:00 a.m.

New England Air Museum

36 Perimeter Road, Windsor Locks

Restaurants, small retailers, historical attractions, wineries and breweries, antique shops, craft stores, Chambers of Commerce and any other tourism-related business/attractions are encouraged to attend! The idea of the Brochure Swap is cross-promotion – tourism attractions and tourism related businesses will have an opportunity to bring their promotional materials to New England Air Museum and have them picked up by other attractions/businesses in the surrounding area.
