More than 100 candidates for the General Assembly are touring CBIA-member member companies this election season or participating in local candidate forums to talk about business-related issues.
Company tours and the issues forums are great ways for candidates running for State House and Senate seats to learn more about businesses in their districts, and to discuss their challenges and opportunities.
Candidate visits also are giving business owners an opportunity not only to showcase their products and services but also bring attention to the impact they have on their communities.
Many of the tours are taking place at small to midsize manufacturers in the state.
“We believe that one of the best ways to spur economic improvement in Connecticut is through more frequent and meaningful interaction between the state’s employers and elected officials,” says Joe Brennan, CBIA’s executive vice president.
“Our program to bring business owners and candidates together at companies across the state is one of many CBIA has planned in the months ahead as a partner in the CT20x17 campaign.”
