State Representative Gail Lavielle (R-143) gave the following testimony on Monday before the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) about recent rate increases by Eversource Energy Company.
Good morning. My name is Gail Lavielle, and I represent the 143rd House district, which includes most of the town of Wilton and parts of Westport and Norwalk. This part of the state was hit hard by Storm Isaias. We are used to storm damage, as the area is heavily forested. We also hoped that we might become used to being better informed each time a storm hit. But we learned we were wrong about that.
