The speaker of the House, Democrat Chris Donovan of Meriden, is slated to appear at the legislative forum at Bristol's City Hall on Thursday, according to party leaders and state Rep. Chris Wright, a Bristol Democrat.
Donovan will likely be there at the start of the two hour forum that begins at 6 p.m. in the council chambers, they said. He's due in New Britain at 6:30 so he won't be around long.
State Sen. Tom Colapietro, the Bristol Democrat who put the forum together, expects to have Donovan and the Democrats who represent Bristol. There may be others as well.
State Rep. Bill Hamzy, the Plymouth Republican who represents the 78th District that includes northwestern Bristol, wasn't invited.
