The Legislative Action Committee of the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce is pleased to announce a Municipal Collaborative Forum to be held Wednesday, April 26th from 8:00 am – 10:00 am at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 42 Century Drive, Bristol.

The Forum is designed to bring municipal leaders from the areas represented by the Chamber together to discuss how municipalities can collaborate to reduce costs and improve efficiency within their regions.

Panelists include Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin, Bristol Mayor Ken Cockayne, Farmington Town Manager Kathy Eagen, Wolcott Mayor Tom Dunn, Bloomfield Mayor Joan Gamble, Plainville Town Manager Robert Lee, Plymouth Mayor David Merchant, and Burlington Mayor Ted Shafer.

“Our Legislative Action Committee is comprised of Business Leaders from our seven communities and we are very concerned of the impact of the state finances and proposed budget on property taxes, income taxes and services provided to our employees,” stated Regional Chairman Paul S. Lavoie.

“A thriving state, with healthy municipalities, is necessary for our businesses to grow and continue to provide jobs. We need to hear from our leaders on how they plan to reduce costs and improve efficiency through collaboration,” concluded Lavoie.

“We are fortunate to have a very active Legislative Action Committee working for the business community,” stated Cindy Scoville, President and CEO of the Central Connecticut Chambers. “They lead the way in setting our legislative agenda and working closely with all of our legislators on ensuring good public policy and a healthy business climate.”
