Dear Friends,


Please join me on August 6th for a public forum in West Hartford. The House majority has accomplished a lot over the past 200 days; from passing legislation lowering health care costs, to improving election security and fighting for our planet, we’re working for you. I am also excited to share the progress made on my Social Security 2100 Act, which received a full Ways & Means Committee hearing last week. I hope to see you in West Hartford as we discuss these matters and others that are of importance to the people of the First Congressional District.
