November 6 is over and election results are in.

Now it’s time to start talking with your incoming state legislators about what YOU want.

They will be sworn in on January 9, 2019 – along with Governor-elect Ned Lamont.  There is good reason for you to reach out to them between now and January.

Don’t just let your state senator and representative retreat behind the walls of the Capitol and the inner workings of the legislative process.  They were elected to work for you.

Contact them.  Introduce yourself (if they don’t already know you).  Let them know that you care about health care and that you want action up in Hartford.  Tell them you want to start a conversation with them about what our state can do to help.

Here are a few suggestions to get started:

You can find the list of who won in each state senate and state representative race here.

Let us know how it goes.  We want to know what legislators are saying to you.  It will help us be more effective advocates – and we might be able to help with follow up.
