Better Choices for Connecticut Lobby Day – You Can Still Take Action!

The Better Choices for Connecticut Lobby Day was a great event! House Majority Leader Denise Merrill spoke about the importance that revenues play in preserving critical services, such as social services, health care, education, transportation, and public safety in the final budget solution. Today’s participants wore Better Choices for Connecticut stickers and met with their legislators or, if they were not available, wrote messages and left them with the legislators’ aide.

If you did not attend the Better Choices for Connecticut Lobby Day, you can still take action! Contact your legislators now and let them know how important it is for them to stand firm on revenues and a good budget! They need to hear from you!

Call your legislators and ask them to support revenues so that Connecticut can preserve critical services to our residents

Email or call the Governor!
