Chris Murphy continued his ‘Getting to Work Tour’ at Leo's Restaurant in Southbury Monday, where he served coffee and heard from customers and employees.
The visit was Murphy’s third stop on his statewide jobs tour. According to Murphy, the job tour includes meeting local business owners to talk about how Connecticut’s next U.S. Senator can help spur job creation.
Murphy has also committed to working alongside employees at each stop to get their ideas and perspective on job growth and the future of Connecticut’s economy.
“We had some great discussions this morning in Southbury. We’ve all seen politicians taking a top-down approach, telling business owners and workers what they need, but this tour is different,” said Murphy. “Listening has become a lost art in government—but it's what I've always done and how I've developed some of my most important legislation.”
For this reason Murphy says he holds office hours in supermarkets and shopping plazas, and goes door to door in non-election years.
“There are five basic ideas that are the root of my jobs plan, but I will constantly seek input from people across the state to help grow Connecticut’s economy by leaps and bounds,” he said.
