Early Release Hearing on Friday, March 22!

Press Release from Len Suzio: 

Early Release Hearing on Friday, March 22!

Dear friends,
The Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on Friday, March 22, at the Legislative Office Building. The details are included in this e-mail notification. We hope to get a good number of people testifying in support of SB 123 which would repeal the program as it applies to violent criminals. It's time to put a stop to letting violent criminals out of prison early to terrorize our neighborhoods and families. Already 2 murders have been attributed to Early Release criminals. If you want to help end this dangerous program sign the petition to end Early Release, attend the hearing, contact the governor's office and your state senator and state representative and ask them to support SB 123 to end early release for violent criminals in Connecticut.
Below are the details. You don't have to testify, although as many people as possible supporting SB 123 would be ideal. If you do plan on attending please respond to me by return e-mail. We are considering a pre-hearing press conference.
Can't make the hearing sign the petition
