“Say we have a veteran, who came back and developed post-traumatic stress disorder, got in trouble with the law, was incarcerated and now has just come out” of prison, asked Connecticut U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy. “How do you help him?”
Fresh off delivering a nationally televised speech at the Democratic National Convention, Murphy was back in Connecticut asking questions Thursday. Listening rather than doing the talking.
Murphy visited the recently-opened New Haven Opportunity Center on Dixwell Avenue, a “one-stop” resource center offering a variety of government services.
After taking a tour through the center’s minty-fresh walls and air-conditioned rooms, the senator sat for a roundtable discussion to hear more about the new initiative from administrators working at the center and its community partners.
