CBIA President & CEO Joe Brennan released the following statement today:

"On behalf of our thousands of member companies all across the state of Connecticut, we congratulate the winners in yesterday's legislative elections, and thank all those who ran for office.

"Now that the voters have spoken, it is vitally important that policymakers work in a truly bipartisan manner to address voters' top concerns—the economy, job creation, and the affordability of our state.

"Connecticut has tremendous economic assets and we are beginning to see heightened focus on the state's challenges.

"By listening to voters and working closely together, lawmakers can solve the state's fiscal problems, restore confidence in Connecticut as a great place to do business, and make our state a leader in economic growth and job creation.

"The CBIA team looks forward to working with the new legislature and the administration to carry out the voters' mandate—to make a great state even better."
