Business Community, Legislators Address Ailing State

By James Lomuscio

The four state legislators at the Westport Library’s legislative wrap up public forum today admitted that the closing General Assembly’s session was far from dynamic.

“It was not an ambitious session,” state Rep. Jonathan Steinberg of Westport, a Democrat, told an audience of about 30 in the McManus Room. “We did not want to put any more burdens on businesses, contrasted to the efforts two years ago to help businesses that are finally bearing fruit.”

The forum, sponsored by the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce (WWCC) and the Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) also included state Rep. Gail Lavielle, Sen. John McKinney, and Sen. Toni Boucher, all Republicans, and all who represent portions of Westport. And it it offered some sobering statistics for the state of the state, and what is needed to turn course.

Bonnie Stewart, CBIA vice president government affairs, introduced by WWCC President Matthew Mandell, moderated the forum.
