Legislative Breakfast Talk Reinforces Importance of Small Business
On March 7th, the Killingworth Chamber cohosted it's first Legislative Breakfast with the Clinton Chamber at La Foresta Restaurant. First Selectwoman Cathy Iino, Clinton First Selectman Bruce Farmer, State Representatives Art Linares and Jesse MacLachlan, State Senator Ted Kennedy, and Emily Boushee, aid to Senator Christopher Murphy, completed the panel. Many Clinton and Killingworth Chamber members were in attendance as well as non-members who joined the conversations.

CT's economy is heavily reliant on small businesses. About 50% of the employed in CT are a part of small businesses. Our officials are aware of this economic force and took this meeting and the concerns of their constituents very seriously. Topics spanned a wide range of issues, including employment application disclosures, taxes, economic development, healthcare, and much more.

The chamber plans to host another meeting of this nature in the fall. Thank you again to the Clinton Chamber for their help in organizing the event, Francesco Lulaj of La Foresta for hosting us, to all the attendees, and to the officials for taking the time to listen to our concerns and discuss solutions.
