Dear Friends, 
Over the past few days, I have toured Connecticut and seen the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. I have also witnessed acts of kindness and aid, people coming together to help others in need. Even at the storm’s worst moments, Connecticut has shown its best — including grit, courage, and generosity. To assess the damage and support recovery efforts, I have visited Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, Norwalk, Bridgeport, Milford, Fairfield, New Haven, Guilford, Clinton, Madison, New London, and Stonington. Over the coming weeks, I will continue to travel the state as we combine our efforts at every level.

I am working — along with other federal, state, and local officials — to spur and speed Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) and United Illuminating (UI) to restore power to more than 300,000 residents still in the dark. Also, we are working closely with FEMA and other agencies to provide assistance to communities with hurricane damage. 
Please be aware that recovery details, voting information, and cleanup efforts are constantly changing. My hope is that you and your family are safe, but I want to ensure that you have access to important resources available to help you deal with this natural disaster. Please consult the list below and my website for the most up-to-date information 

As always, if you encounter problems, have questions, or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
