U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy will lead a roundtable discussion on infrastructure at at 2:45 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 23 at Greenwich Town Hall. Most of the panel consists of Greenwich officials and community members, but all are invited, and invitations have gone out to area mayors and first selectmen.
Murphy, who is among many Senators supporting a $1 trillion infrastructure plan, will be introduced by Greenwich Selectman Drew Marzullo. Murphy is looking forward to engaging as many people as he can. The meeting is open to the public and takes place in the Town Hall Meeting Room. Greenwich Town Hall is located at 101 Field Point Road.
The list of roundtable attendees has yet to be finalized, but some participants include Greenwich Selectman John Toner, State Rep. Fred Camillo, Senior Harvard Fellow Suneel Kamilani, Greenwich Public Works Commissioner Amy Seibert, Greenwich Deputy Public Works Commissioner James Michel, TAG Director James Boutelle, HATG Director Sam Romeo and Greenwich Chamber of Commerce Director Marcia O’Kane.

“The Senator is very appreciative of all the amazing insight he receives from visiting towns like Greenwich,” Marzullo said of Murphy. “I for one thank him for engaging, and it is important that many of us in our own way, hold accountable President Trump’s campaign promise to rebuild America — and not repair with a piecemeal, Band-Aid, small incremental effort.”
Marzullo argued that America must build 21st century infrastructure, including modern ports, stronger bridges, faster trains and Internet.
“Never again should a U.S. city like Flint, or anywhere else for that matter, be subject to drinking water that is poisonous,” he said. “This is crazy. ”
