NORTH CANAAN — Rep. John Rigby met today with employees at a local manufacturing company, where workers talked about concerns over the state’s budget deficit and offered ideas about closing the massive gap. Rigby, of Colebrook, spent a couple of hours at Bicron USA on Barlow Street. Bicron, in business since the mid-1960s, designs and manufactures solenoids and transformers as well as sensors and high frequency magnetics. The company employs more than 80 people from throughout the area. Company officials talked to Rigby about the need to ease regulations that make life difficult for businesses in Connecticut, and Rigby chatted with employees at their workstations inside the manufacturing shop about those very issues. After his tour, the 40-year-old lawmaker met with more than a dozen people inside Bicron’s cafeteria and told them a little bit about the legislative committees on which he is serving. In discussing the state’s budget woes, Bicron workers suggested that state agencies move toward making government more efficient, something Bicron had to do in order to keep its business moving forward. Rigby and the House Republican caucus have called repeatedly for reviews of state spending at every corner. Rigby plans to return to Bicron periodically. Click here to learn more about Bicron.
