NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — Leaders of the state Senate are stepping in to help constituents of a colleague recuperating from a head injury.
The Day of New London reports that Senate President Pro Tem Martin Looney and state Sen. Cathy Osten of Sprague met Monday with municipal leaders of seven of the eight towns in Sen. Andrew Maynard’s eastern Connecticut district to hear their concerns, update them on the legislative session and assure them they’ll be represented while Maynard is out.
Maynard’s staff, Osten, Looney and their staffs will handle requests from constituents until Maynard is back at work.
Maynard, who was injured in July in a fall at his Stonington home, was re-elected to a fifth term in November. He appeared at the Capitol Jan. 7 to take the oath of office, but didn’t speak publicly.
