Here’s the text of the email:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Earlier this fall, I told you about efforts I was making with the Connecticut Department of Transportation to reduce train-horn noise along the New Canaan Branch, and that we’d have a town-hall-style forum where you could discuss the issue with representatives of DOT and Metro-North Railroad.

I’m glad to announce that that forum will take place on Monday, Jan. 27, from 6 to 7 p.m., at the Harry Bennett Branch of the Ferguson Library in Stamford. We will be joined by DOT Commissioner Joe Giulietti and a representative of Metro-North, as well as a number of my colleagues from the General Assembly.

I hope you will attend. DOT, Metro-North, and I need your perspective to ensure we achieve the highest quality of life possible while still ensuring public safety.

We hope that you can join us for this important discussion.

As always, please feel free to call me at the Capitol at 800-842-8267, send an email to Matt.Blumenthal@cga.ct.gov, and “Like” my Facebook Page, Twitter, and Instagram profiles to get the latest news and legislative updates.
