The Retired Men’s Association of Greenwich (RMA) will host State Representative Stephen Meskers speaking on “State of the State: Connecticut Crossroads to Growth,” on Wednesday, June 19 at 11:00am sharp.
State Representative Meskers (D-150) will discuss his views on healthcare reform and the proposal to introduce tolls on Connecticut highways. He will also address the energy markets, the budgetary process, and the pros and cons of boosting state revenues by increasing taxes on estates, property, and capital gains.
Representative Meskers has a BA from Fordham University in Economics and Spanish, and an MBA in Finance from the Lubin School at Pace University.
Prior to entering the House, Representative Meskers had a 35-year career in emerging markets at Irving Trust, Chemical Bank and Banco Santander. His role as head of fixed income sales at Banco Santander provided him with exposure to macro-economic policy and regulatory reform in various emerging economies.
The program takes place at the First Presbyterian Church, 1 West Putnam Ave. The Greenwich Retired Men’s Association offers a free program every Wednesday that is open to the public.
