Remember to Meet Your Greens Tonight with State Rep. Matt Lesser

Meet Your Greens, Middlesex County monthly green drinks networking gathering, will meet at Cypress Restaurant tonight,  5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Come meet our State Rep. Matt Lesser and hear about how the environment fared in the past legislative session.

Matt Lesser, now in his third term representing the 100th Assembly District (Middletown), has earned a lifetime 100% voting record from the CT League of Conservation Voters and is active in the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators.  As Assistant Majority Leader, he serves on the Energy & Technology Committee, is chair of the Legislative Subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee and is vice chair of the Government Administration and Elections Committee. He will share  news on such state issues as fracking waste storage, protecting open space, and expanding support for renewable energy.  Bring your questions (and a friend!)
