SOUTHINGTON –Wednesday night in the Southington Town Council Chambers Senator Joseph Markley (R-16) and State Rep. Rob Sampson (R-80) hosted a meeting with constituents.
The Southington legislators detailed the state of the state budget process and talked about other key issues that were debated in the just completed 2012 legislative session. Some topics of discussion included the repeal of the death penalty, forced unionization for personal care assistants, Sunday liquor sales and the state budget deficit.
The legislators showed a power point presentation which highlighting the issues debated during the 2012 legislative session and took questions for the audience after the presentation.
“I always appreciate the opportunity to meet directly with the residents of my district so I can keep them informed of what is going on at the State Capitol and what issues concern them the most. I continue to fight for a more balanced common sense approach to our state’s finances. The Governor has taken the path of more government spending and more taxes. I believe we need to do the opposite. We should have a smaller less intrusive government and far less taxes so residents and small business owners have a greater chance to succeed,” said Sampson.
