Connecticut Business Day 2017
More than 40 members of the Waterbury Regional Chamber and Smaller Manufacturers Association of Connecticut Inc. rode a bus to Hartford on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, for Connecticut Business Day.

The annual event, sponsored by the Connecticut Business and Industry Association, provides opportunities for business executives, including many manufacturers, to meet with legislators from the region and across the state.

Waterbury Mayor Neil M. O’Leary also joined the delegation for the event, which included a keynote speech by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. Two manufacturers, Hubbard-Hall Inc. and Marjan Inc., sponsored the bus. Among the legislators who met with the delegation during lunch were Rep. Larry Butler, D-Waterbury; Sen. Joan Hartley, D-Waterbury; Rep. David Labriola, R-Naugatuck, Rep. John Piscopo, R-Thomaston, and Rep. Rob Sampson, R-Wolcott. Former Watertown Rep. Rob Kane, who now serves as a State Auditor, also met with the group.
