State Senator Alex Bergstein will host “Bringing Business Back to CT,” the second in a series of Community Conversations for Greenwich residents on Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the Cole Auditorium at the Greenwich Library. The event is free and open to the public.
Joining Senator Bergstein to discuss how to attract and retain businesses in Connecticut will be Indra Nooyi, Chairwoman of PepsiCo. Their discussion is intended to be interactive and the community is invited to ask questions on this or other related topics such as transportation and economic growth.
“To keep our taxes low, we must grow our state’s economy by creating an economic environment that attracts and retains business,” Bergstein said. “Listening to the experts and following best practices, such as investing in faster train service, will bring new companies, new jobs and new taxpayers to our state that make Connecticut competitive and enable our economy to grow and thrive.”
Bergstein is the newly elected State Senator for the 36th District, which covers all of Greenwich and parts of Stamford and New Canaan.
Bergstein has been appointed Chair of the Banking Committee as well as Co-chair of the Judiciary and Transportation Committees.
Bergstein made civic engagement and accountability of elected officials the hallmarks of her campaign and lower taxes and fiscal responsibility the cornerstones of her platform.
The purpose of the Community Conversations is to encourage the involvement of residents in a constructive dialogue and have an open exchange of ideas and information about all the issues facing the state. The event is open to the public.
