Press release from state Rep. Chris Wright, a Bristol Democrat:
REP. WRIGHT WELCOMES THE FORMATION OF A GENERAL ASSEMBLY CAUCUS TO PROMOTE MANUFACTURING
State Representative Christopher Wright (D-Bristol) is welcoming the formation of a Connecticut General Assembly “Manufacturing/Advanced Manufacturing Caucus” to emphasize and promote the importance and manufacturing in Connecticut.
“This is a very positive step and comes at a critical time following last year’s special session on job creation in Connecticut,” Rep. Wright said. “Bristol has a great history of manufacturing and whatever we can do to stimulate manufacturing jobs and help our companies that are here to compete and grow is worth the effort.”
The new group will host briefings and roundtable discussions with industry experts, disseminating information and providing resources so that members and their staff can learn about opportunities and challenges facing Connecticut’s manufacturing sectors.
“I look forward to meeting with our local manufacturers to get their input and share their concerns with the caucus members,” Rep. Wright said. “The health of our economy has always depended on good paying manufacturing jobs and we will not have a healthy economy until we rejuvenate our manufacturing sector.”
The legislators have scheduled a press conference to announce the details about the new caucus on Wednesday, May 2nd at 10:00 a.m. in Room 1B, Legislative Office Building.
