AFT Connecticut

April 2019 “AFT in Action”

April 29, 2019

AFT Connecticut President Jan Hochadel and Legislative/Political Action Chair Ally Sexton co-host the latest episode in the state federation's podcast series. Their conversation continued last month's discussion on issues at the General Assembly important to union members and all working families.

Their guest is state Rep. Roland Lemar, the House chair of the legislature's transportation committee. He answers questions on the latest proposals for reviving tolls in order to invest in Connecticut's aging infrastructure. He also addresses the latest efforts by the finance, revenue and bonding committee, on which he also sits, to level the playing filed for middle and working class taxpayers.Apr-Podcast-Photo-MD.jpg

AFT Connecticut's podcasts serve to provide a deeper dive into issues impacting members and the wider labor movement as part of the state federation’s engagement and communications programs.
