West Hartford Legislators will be talking about the 2013 legislative session during a series of monthly, live call-in shows. The first in the series was held on Monday, January 14, on WHC-TV. The public is invited to call in and ask questions directly of our elected officials. Beth Bye, Brian Becker, Andy Fleischmann, and Joe Verrengia were all present for the first program, shown in the accompanying photo. The topics addressed included gun control legislation, mental health, the budget and budget deficit and the pros and cons of fracking. The legislators are happy to take your calls. The program runs for one hour and is moderated by a League of Women Voters member.
