GOV. MALLOY TO HOST COMMUNITY FORUM
IN MIDDLETOWN ON WEDNESDAY
(HARTFORD, CT) - Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman today announced that they will host a community forum in Middletown on Wednesday, March 6. These town hall-style events provide an opportunity to discuss the state's pressing issues face-to-face with state residents. They are open to the public; tickets are not necessary and seats are available on a first come, first served basis.
"We have a number of critically important issues facing the state, and I am eager for the opportunity to hear from residents about their concerns, so that we can move forward together," Governor Malloy said. "The last two years, I attended more than thirty events like this at venues across the state. I think being out there, talking with people face-to-face so that we can have an open exchange and I can hear what is on their minds helps all of us in government be more effective at serving the people we represent."
"These forums are a great way for our residents to have their voices heard on issues important to them and their families," Lt. Governor Wyman said. "I look forward to hearing their personal visions for how we can make Connecticut a better place, now and for future generations."
Wednesday's forum in Middletown will be held at the City Hall at 245 deKoven Drive and will run from 7-8PM. Those who would like an opportunity to ask a question should arrive a little bit earlier to fill out the sign-up sheet.
Additional dates and locations across the state will be announced as they are scheduled. For the latest schedule, please visit http://governor.ct.gov/communityforums .
