Kudos to a LOCAL HERO!

Earlier today, State Senator Paul Cicarella, Wallingford Town Council Chair Joe Marrone and Vice Chair Christina Tatta, Board of Education member Caroline Raynis, and I presented an official state citation to Wallingford Postal Carrier Michael Waite for his heroic actions to alert residents of an apartment complex of a late-December fire in the building.

Putting aside concern for his own safety and reacting by instinct, Mr. Waite, a Meriden resident, quickly assessed the danger and went door to door of the Terrace Garden Apartment Complex to make sure everyone knew of the fire and would get out safely. Thanks to his actions, no one was harmed and only property was damaged.

Wallingford's Post Office already did a good job, but this is above and beyond. Well done and thank you!

Public Hearing Regarding Escalating Costs for Home Heating

In early June, my Republican colleagues and I raised concerns about the financial pressure residents would experience this fall as they faced the skyrocketing expense of heating their homes. We proposed a plan to use some of the state's significant surplus funds to provide additional home heating assistance to those who would need it. Unfortunately, our plan fell on deaf ears.

However, Our concern on this subject continues as the legislature grapples with the reality that one-time federal funding for people who rely on the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program has evaporated. I want you to know that there’s a public hearing Monday that provides you an opportunity to share your concerns about this topic either in person (via Zoom) or by submitting written testimony. I hope you’ll consider participating by telling state lawmakers about how rising home heating costs will impact you and your family members. Here’s how to participate:

Public Hearing: Committees on Appropriations, Energy, and Human Services

Monday, Aug. 29, 10 a.m. – Zoom

FFY 23 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program Allocation Plan Proposed Amendment to the FFY 23 Low Income Household Water Assistance Program Grant Allocation Plan

The Appropriations, Energy and Technology and Human Services Committees will hold a joint public hearing, followed by committee meetings, on Monday, August 29, 2022, at 10:00 AM via Zoom. The public hearing can be viewed via YouTube Live.

Individuals who wish to testify via Zoom must register using the On-line Testimony Registration Form. Registration will close on Friday, August 26, 2022, at 3:00 PM. If you do not have internet access, you may provide testimony via telephone. To register to testify by phone, call the Phone Registrant Line at 860-240-0033 to leave your contact information.

Comment Period Open for Proposed Insurance Rate Increases

The Connecticut Insurance Department is considering substantial proposed rate increases for individual and small group (for employers with 50 or fewer workers) insurance markets.

Wallingford 350th (+2): Three Cheers for Gaylord Gauntlet 2022!

Another FANTASTIC Wallingford350 Event was held over the weekend, the Annual Gaylord Gauntlet! One of my very favorite events of the year, which benefits the various programs for patients and the community as well as the Gaylord Sports Association which provides adaptive sports for people with physical disabilities.

(I must admit that inevitably I ask myself somewhere half-way through WHY I am putting myself through this. The self-doubt is quick though as I see the adaptive athletes who have had to overcome much more challenging obstacles than I have.) Their intestinal fortitude is both inspiring and motivational. THREE CHEERS! Hip, Hip, Hurray! Hip, Hip, Hurray! Hip, Hip ...

Wallingford 350th (+2): Jubilee (Essay Contest Winner Selected!)

Wallingford’s 350th +2 Jubilee has been the talk of the town for more than two years and despite the delay, I   was going to make sure Wallingford’s youth received the recognition they deserved for researching and writing about their favorite local historical figure.

Two years ago, before the pandemic suspended the town’s 350th Jubilee festivities, I sponsored a voluntary 400-500 word essay contest for Middle school students from both Dag Hammarskjold and James H. Moran Sr. Middle School on their “Favorite pre-1960 Wallingford Historical Figure, and Why?”

The winner – Luke Bobarsky, who wrote about Moses Yale Beach – was announced during the History Day Continental Breakfast at the Wallingford Historical Society on Monday, June 20th.  I read his winning essay to a crowd of more than 50 people gathered in front of the historical society building on Main Street.

In order to truly engage students with town history, I narrowed the theme to focus on Wallingford figures deceased prior to 1960. Essays were judged by each school’s administration based on form, style, research, grammar, and insight. From four finalists, I chose the top essay.

I’m proud of the work all of the students put into their entries.

The four finalists:

  • Luke Bobarsky, whose winning essay is addressed above.
  • Emilia R. Farrell, who wrote about John Brockett and Alfred L. Pierce.
  • Maritza Hernandez, who wrote about Lyman Hall.
  • Carter Lagasse, who wrote about Dr. Mark T. Sheehan.

The Wallingford Historical Society is located at 180 South Main Street, Wallingford.

Happy CELEBRATION OF FREEDOM! Happy Juneteenth!

Earlier this year, I proudly joined my colleagues in the legislature as we passed important legislation in the recognition of FREEDOM, and Governor Lamont signed into law, Public Act 22-128, which makes June 19th an official state holiday known as Juneteenth Independence Day.
Juneteenth (June 19, 1865) is a commemoration of the end of slavery and marks the date Federal troops freed slaves in Texas following the Emancipation Proclamation which took effect on January 1, 1863. Juneteenth is also referred to as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day.
This new Connecticut law takes effect on October 1st of this year, which means Juneteenth will be officially recognized and first-celebrated as a state holiday next year on June 19, 2023.
I hope you’ll join me this, next, and every year to pause and reflect on how important our freedoms are, and the work that still needs to be done to ensure we are all equal.

Please Protect Your Animals from Cold Temperatures

With the potential for major snow this weekend, and with temperatures expected to stay low and wind chills making it feel even colder, it’s important to think about the care of your pets, too!

Some animals, like our state’s beloved Husky, enjoy being outside in the cold and snow, but even they have their limits. Leaving animals exposed to extreme weather is cruel, can be deadly for them, and could be against the law.

If you suspect abuse locally, please contact: Cheshire Animal Control, Wallingford Animal Control or your local police department.

The ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States offer good information and tips to keep animals safe and healthy.

To make sure your pets are properly protected and cared for, the Humane Society offers the following five tips to protect pets in winter, and guidelines on what to do if you suspect animals are being mistreated.

  • Keep pets sheltered
  • Bundle up, wipe down
  • Remove common poisons
  • Protect outdoor animals
  • Speak out

If you suspect an animal is being abused, including being left outside in extreme heat or cold, please:
