I was forwarded this a few minutes ago. These are the words of Bruce J. Rich, President, CT Fly Fisherman’s Association:
“The deadline for submitting testimony regarding the Public Hearing on DEEP’s budget is Monday March 2, 2015. Note that “testimony” does not mean you wish to speak. Testimony can be in written form only and sent via email to (SC’s words: please cut and paste this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org).
In the Subject Line write: Testimony to Appropriations Comm. for the March 2, 2015 Public Hearing on Hatchery Funding
Note that the committee prefers to receive email testimony as an attachment to the email, preferably in pdf form (although MS Word form should suffice).
Attached is my updated testimony in pdf form which you may use all, or part of, in your message. Just be sure to replace my name & address with your own. Note that your message can be very short, but it’s important at this time to get as many people as possible writing to support keeping Kensington Hatchery operational.
Don’t squawk later, get busy now.”
Here is Bruce’s letter in pdf form: Testimony submitted to March 2
“My great, great grandaddy came from the Kensington Hatchery.”
