Today State Representative Christopher Davis (R- Ellington) visited the East Windsor Senior Center to discuss state issues with residents. Discussion centered on the looming tax increases that will hit residents on July 1st. Many in attendance expressed concern that the tax increases will hurt many on fixed incomes who are already struggling in the difficult economy.
Davis also talked about the special session scheduled for tomorrow. Because state employee unions rejected the concession deal offered by the Governor, the state must find a way to close a $700 million budget gap by Friday, the start of the new fiscal year. Governor Malloy recently released a plan to lay off 5,500 employees and cut municipal aid.
