Stamford Eye on the Beltway: Lieberman Writes About Fallen Soldier

And, DeLauro speaks about elevating the teaching profession.


BLUMENTHAL: The senator is looking for manufacturers in Connecticut to fill out a survey in order to get a feel for the state of the business.

“We clearly can’t do our jobs without this input, so we hope that you will take a few moments to give us your ideas and perspective about the current state of Connecticut’s manufacturing industry,” he said.

LIEBERMAN: For Memorial Day, the senator wrote about fallen soldier Brian Bill, a Stamford native.

“On this Memorial Day, we remember fallen heroes like Bill — a pantheon of extraordinary American men and women whose service and sacrifice span our history and have, quite literally, made America possible. From the beaches of Normandy to the orchards of Kandahar, from Bunker Hill to Chosin, and from Little Round Top to Sadr City, we owe our liberty and security as a nation to the courageous Americans who never came home from these places, and to those heroes — family and friends, neighbors and strangers — who survived.”

DELAURO: The congresswoman hosted Education Secretary Arne Duncan in New Haven on Tuesday for a roundtable  on how to elevate the teaching profession.

"In such a tough economy, with deep and unprecedented cuts in education spending, teachers are being asked to do more with less,” she said. “And economic struggles at home directly impact the children in their classrooms. So it is more important than ever that we make sure we are valuing teachers—by investing in the profession, by compensating them fairly, and by working with them to create the conditions for success in every school across the country. We can start by ensuring teachers’ voices are being heard at policy discussions and debates, such as the one we held today.”
