The Wilton League of Women Voters and the Wilton Library will present a discussion about Connecticut’s fiscal challenges with Connecticut Mirror state budget reporter Keith Phaneuf on Thursday, April 4, 7 p.m., at the library.

Phaneuf has covered the state budget for The Connecticut Mirror since 2010. In this role he analyzes and reports on all aspects of state government finances, including the budget development process, pension funding, income tax equity, waste in government, and the impact of the state’s budgeting and financial policy decisions.
