Spanish Speaking Center of New Britain, CT Faces Closure

Spanish Speaking Center of New Britain, CT Executive Director and Community Party member Mary Sanders was the last person to testify at Friday’s Appropriations Committee public hearing on Gov. Dannel Malloy’s proposed $25 million in human services cuts. SSC, which has been serving the needs of low income Hispanic residents in New Britain for 50 years, faces closure on July 1st due to Malloy’s cuts. You can watch her testimony at approximately the 7 hour, 6 minute mark of the Connecticut Network video of the hearing. http://www.ctn.state.ct.us/webstream.asp?odID=11280&odTitle=Appropriations%20Committee%20Public%20Hearing%20on%20the%20Governor%u2019s%20Budget%20for%20DPH%2C%20DDS%2C%20DMHAS%20%26%20Dept.%20of%20Veterans%u2019%20Affairs&caption=true
