For local legislators, it’s all about jobs. Some seven years after the end of the state’s recession, Connecticut has yet to recover all the positions it lost during the economic crisis.
With an eye on boosting the state’s economy and improving its business climate State Representative Caroline Simmons (D–Stamford) has been appointed House Chair of the Commerce Committee. “I want to thank House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz for this honor,” Rep. Simmons said.
Representative Terry B. Adams was promoted Friday by Speaker Joe Aresimowicz to assistant majority leader of the House Democratic Caucus. Rep. Adams will serve under Majority Leader Matthew D. Ritter.
