Got a question for Tong?

An avowed civil rights guardian, Tong supports environmental protection, consumer rights, reproductive freedom, and opioid crisis accountability.  Prior to being named AG in January 2019, he was a Connecticut General Assemblyman for twelve years, chairing both the Judiciary Committee and the Banking Committee.  With a CV including eighteen years of litigating in federal and state courts, he is Connecticut’s first Asian American to be elected at state level.

Free registration for the meeting is at  bit.ly/hffcTONG, then check in at 6:45 on Monday the 13th.

Ask Mr. Tong why, when they were passing out cars in Hartford (at taxpayer expense) he insisted on a gigantic SUV? A gas sucking Chevy Tahoe if memory serves.
Does anyone remember when public servants actually drove their own cars?

It’s nice that NPL has a fully dedicated LGBTQ section in the kids area…..but not one single Math book.
