Honoring Connecticut's Heroes

Middletown veterans ceremony
It was a privilege to honor nearly 80 veterans in late January at the Middletown Senior Center. Veterans and their families were thanked for their sacrifices and presented with the Connecticut Wartime Service Medal. Photos of veterans who received a medal at the ceremony are posted to my special photo gallery, accessible on Flickr. I encourage everyone who attended to visit the gallery and download their photos.

Prior to the General Assembly establishing this award in 2005, the State of Connecticut had not honored its veterans with a wartime service medal since World War I. Anyone who served in the armed forces during a time of war and was a Connecticut resident at the time, or currently lives here, is eligible for the award. Many veterans from the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq received the medal as part of their discharge packets, but many veterans who served prior to 2005 are unaware of the medal's existence. Any veteran who believes they may be eligible for the medal may contact my office.

Kicking off the 2016 Legislative Session

Senator Doyle in the SenateLast week, the General Assembly kicked off the 2016 Legislative session. Every year I look forward to returning to the Senate Chamber where I will continue advocating for the 9th District communities of Cromwell, Middletown, Newington, Rocky Hill and Wethersfield. The session is 13 weeks long and will require that we address important issues and make difficult decisions.

A lot of my work will be through the Energy and Technology Committee, on which I serve as chair. You can visit the committee's website to get up-to-date information about the work we are doing involving energy and technology in Connecticut. If you want to speak to me about the work we are doing throughout the session, please do not hesitate to contact my office. You can reach me by phone at 860-240-0475 or by email through my website.
