HARTFORD, Conn. – Getting government to commit to infrastructure repairs and quality services for veterans — and looking at new ways to pay for them — generated animated discussion by Connecticut’s U.S. senators at a Hartford forum Friday.

Called “Dialogue with the Delegation,” the program hosted by the Metro Hartford Alliance and the New England Council at the Hartford Marriott drew about 150 people from the business and non-profit sectors and gave them the chance to submit questions to Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy.

Both senators expressed frustration with the gridlock that has stymied movement of bills in Congress.

The state and nation’s aging infrastructure is a major concern for many of its members, said James T. Brett, president and CEO of the New England Council. Blumenthal agreed, adding that he fears leaving to the next generation the problems that have been ignored for years.

    All talk and no action for our Congressional legislators.
    Let’s re-elect the bunch to show that “we care”. About sending the very best delegation to Congress.
