“We had so many great works of art entered into the competition this year, it was clearly a very difficult decision for our judges to choose one single winner,” said Courtney. “I am very impressed by the level of artistic ability and creativity shown by the young people who took part this year. It seems like year after year – the art works get even better. After the judges made a careful evaluation of the entries, I am pleased to announce that Alexandra Crampton of RHAM High School in Hebron is the winner for the Second Congressional District. Her entry was the standout piece of the night, and we are proud that it will represent eastern Connecticut in the Capitol building for the next year.”

“Plum Island is a scenic and biological treasure located right in the middle of Long Island Sound,” said the lawmakers. “The island is home to a rich assortment of endangered species, and should be preserved as a natural sanctuary – not sold off to the highest bidder for development. We have long supported federal legislation to remove the government requirement to sell Plum Island as a means to finance a new research facility. The sale of Plum Island is no longer financially necessary because Congress has fully appropriated the funds to build the new bioresearch facility in Kansas. Now that this legislation has been passed in committee, it is our hope that it will be quickly passed by the full House and taken up in the Senate. We are closer than we have ever been to permanently protecting Plum Island.”
