WESTPORT, Conn. -- Residents can get an insider's look at the current legislative session without traveling to Hartford on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at the Westport Library.
State legislators have been invited to the "How're things in Hartford" breakfast at 9:30 a.m. in the McManus Room.

The forum is a chance for business people and resident to ask "tough questions" for the representatives to address, Mandell continued.

“This forum is an opportunity to discuss how to get the state back on the path to prosperity.”
