"PASS A STATE BUDGET" Rally Tomorrow, July 21st
Advocates to Hold 11 a.m. Friday Rally in Meriden to Say: “Pass a State Budget”
MERIDEN - Meriden Sen. Len Suzio is hosting an 11 a.m. rally Friday (July 21) at the Meriden Green Amphitheater (77 State Street) to call upon the Connecticut Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore of the State Senate to sign an emergency certification for the Legislature to pass a state budget as soon as possible.
Advocates for disabled and at-risk Connecticut residents will attend the 11 a.m. rally, including:
· MidState Arc CEO Pamela Fields
· Middletown-based Gilead Community Services CEO Dan Osborne
· Meriden-based Kuhn Employment Opportunities, Inc. Executive Director Beth Fisher
· Meriden-Wallingford Chrysalis Director of Programs Linsey Walters
"Vital services for thousands of our neediest citizens throughout Connecticut are being suspended and slashed due to the failure of the legislature to pass a budget," Sen. Suzio said. "Local budgets are also in limbo. Our message is simple: We want legislative leaders to do their jobs and pass a Connecticut budget."
Suzio said Friday's event, which is open to the public, will launch a community-based petition drive urging state lawmakers to pass a budget.
