Weekly Legislative Update 6.8.15 

Tuesday, June 9, 2015
So, how did YSBs do? In the end, we were able to mitigate a nearly $1.4 million cut down to $150,000. Yes, it is a cut and I hate every penny of it! However, but for the work WE ALL DID, it couldíve been so much worse!!! Every single person who made a phone call, sent an email, spoke to their legislators, deserves credit for showing the power of what a dedicated group of people can do to change policy. I thank you all! Read More...

What a great week for YSBs! Wednesday was the 11th annual YSB Day at the Capitol! While I canít speak for the attendees or staff who put the event together, from my standpoint, the day went very well. Yes, we had to maneuver around an 11:00 a.m. Appropriations Committee meeting which robbed us of several of the Legislators we expected for our panel discussion, however, those who did make it were exceptional! This was by far the largest number of kids weíve had at this eventÖever! Read More.....

New Britainís Juvenile Review Board in Action 

Monday, March 30, 2015
It isnít every day that a child of fifteen can walk into a J.C. Penny and claim whatever she wants. For Suhailey Oday that moment came once and she sought to make the most of it. With her friend as backup, Suhailey entered the department store armed with nothing but an empty bag. She would see something that caught her eye and immediately tuck it away without concern for the price. When she was through browsing and concealing the items, she tried to make a quick and easy getaway. That was until she was stopped at the entrance by an undercover mall security guard, who had been following her every move from the perfumes to the shoes and through to the lingerie section.
