GOP legislators meet constituents

State Reps. Whit Betts (R-78) and Cara Pavalock (R-77) hosted their monthly coffee hour event last Friday at Rodd’s Restaurant in Bristol. Due to legislative business, state Sen. Henri Martin (R-31) was unable to attend this month’s event.
Early morning patrons greeted Betts and Pavalock, many of whom had more than one topic of concern for discussion with their legislator, according to a press release from House Republicans. Most of the constituents took issue with the budget and the $350 million shortfall facing the state, said the release.
Another resident discussed their concerns regarding their propane home heating bill and the tax levied because of hookup to a backup generator, said the release. Other topics for discussion included repealing common core, assistance for children with medically complex needs, second amendment rights, and concern regarding funding cuts to community hospitals, including Bristol Hospital.
