Builders association honors Gentile with Dream Award

    HARTFORD - The Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut honored state Rep. Linda M. Gentile, D-Ansonia, with the Connecticut Dream Award. 
    This award, the highest honor given to public officials by the association, recognizes those who have demonstrated consistent support for the policies of the HBRA of Connecticut and who have made significant contributions to the home building industry and the production of more housing for Connecticut’s citizens.

     “Representative Gentile has exhibited common sense and reason as co-chair of Planning & Development in 2011 and 2012. Moving over in 2013 to co-chair the Environment Committee, she brought a desperately needed measure of balance and fairness to the historically anti-business Environment Committee,” said Bill Ethier, HBRACT’s Chief Executive Officer.

     “I am very pleased and humbled to even be considered for this award,” Rep. Gentile said.  “Our home builders play an important role as we look to revitalize Connecticut.”

     The 2013 Connecticut Dream Award was presented at the association’s Leadership & Legacy Dinner.
     The event gathered current and future leaders of the statewide association and the five local HBRA chapter associations: Eastern CT, Fairfield County, Greater Hartford, New Haven County, and Northwest CT.

     The Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut is a professional trade association with 900 member firms statewide.

    Members, all small businesses, are residential and commercial builders, land developers, remodelers, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers 
     The HBRACT’s officers, members and staff work to solve industry problems and promote Connecticut’s economic growth.
