A Proactive Plan for Eastern CT's Economy

I'm working with the Eastern Connecticut Workforce Investment Board (EWIB) on a piece of legislation to assess how a third casino near Hartford would affect our area. We need to have a proactive jobs plan to best prepare eastern Connecticut for the future.

Together we have been working on a plan to recapture any jobs we may lose in the casino industry and ensure eastern Connecticut recovers. While the plan is in its early stages, we are looking at expanding the regional Early College Opportunity Program that lets high school students graduate with a career-applicable associate degree, increasing career counseling for workers in transition, and creating a full analysis of our workforce to determine areas we need to focus on.

These steps would be captured under existing state funding and would build on other programs already in place that connect people with opportunities at Electric Boat and in the healthcare industry.

Read more about my plan in The Day here. Please contact my office if you have ideas or suggestions that can strengthen eastern Connecticut's economy.
