New State Budget Invests in Connecticut's and Hartford's Future

By Rep. Matt Ritter

I couldn’t be prouder of the work we accomplished during the legislative session, and I am grateful for the input and recommendations I received from many of you as we worked together on the issues you care about.

Exploring Asylum Hill - 20-28 Sargeant St
The fate of Veeder Place at 20-28 Sargeant St has been suspenseful for years. The building that began as a state-of-the-art factory around 1900 as Veeder manufacturing and merged with the Root Company from Bristol in 1928, finally ceased manufacturing by 1980 and move their world headquarters to Simsbury.

Youth Challenge began 50 years ago. They have been a mainstay in Asylum Hill for decades and have helped thousands of men and women regain control of their lives by breaking free of drugs and substance abuse. 
Malta House of Care COVID Vaccines still available

There are many in this neighborhood who still, for a host of reasons, are not vaccinated. Walk-in vaccines are now only available in Hartford at The Burgdorf Health Center at 131 Coventry Street. But Malta House of Care offered free walk-in vaccines each Wednesday during June, and they will continue that walk-in service from 11:30am – 2:30pm on the last Wednesday of both July and August.
