FAIRFIELD — Vice President Joe Biden stopped here Monday afternoon to talk about federal stimulus funds and touched on a subject trumpeted for months by state Rep. Tony Hwang: the need to get Connecticut residents working again. Roughly 300 people showed up to the event, held at a commuter lot along Jefferson Street, just off the Merritt Parkway. The scenic highway will see a bit of work performed by the state Department of Transportation through dollars provided by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act. Standing before a backdrop of heavy-duty construction equipment, Hwang spent a bit of time chatting with DOT Commissioner Joe Marie (pictured, left.) Promoting policy that would jump start Connecticut’s economic engine — and job growth — has made up the bulk of Hwang’s time since his election to the state legislature last November.
