education is clear. CEA is proud to endorse Theresa Conroy for state representative.”

Beacon Falls has increased, despite difficult state budgets. In addition, Conroy has
worked to secure more than $4.5 million for her district in school construction grants.
Conroy also acquired state funds for a new athletic field and softball field at Seymour
In addition, Conroy has been a champion for advanced manufacturing training at the
state’s technical high schools.
“I was proud to have Sen. Chris Murphy accompany me on Platt Tech’s shop floor to see
how our young people are developing important skills for the future. They will be the
next generation of manufacturers in our state,” Conroy said.
Conroy noted that the state’s technical high schools and community colleges are terrific
resources that train students for high-skill careers.
