State Legislative Committee Assignments Set

January 9th, 2017 · 3 Comments · News and Events

Committee assignments have been set for Bridgeport’s eight-member legislative delegation for the General Assembly session that began on Wednesday. State Senator Marilyn Moore co-chairs the Children Committee and Human Services Committee while her Senate colleague Ed Gomes co-chairs Labor and Public Employees. State Rep. Jack Hennessy co-chairs Veterans Affairs. CT Mirror has the full list of committee co-chairs here.

New Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz announced leadership and committee assignments on Thursday.

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. What I would like to know is the level of communication and “interfacing” the BPT GA members have with the people of Bridgeport. I live in the area represented by State Rep Steve Stafstrom and State Senator Marilyn Moore. Stafstrom has been proactive, but frankly, I have been disappointed with Marilyn Moore’s communications with her constituents. I did vote for her this past primary/General Election, but upon next opportunity with Moore and staff/etc., I will communicate there needs to be greater communication with constituents.
