He consistently hears from constituents that their number one priority is job creation. According to John, “manufacturing is an essential part of Connecticut’s DNA.” From Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford to Arcor Manufacturing in Windsor, Connecticut manufacturers are producing complex, quality products that are used around the world.
