MIDDLETOWN — Bolstering tourism in a cohesive way was the focus Tuesday as the state speaker of the House announced the formation of a committee that would create a campaign to encourage visitors from throughout the region to spend their dollars in Connecticut.
State Rep. Joe Aresimowicz, D-Berlin, was joined by industry leaders from around the state at the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce in Middletown — including representatives from various industries such as transportation, lodging and cultural destinations. Edward Dombroskas, executive director of the Eastern Connecticut Regional Tourism District; Jeffry Muthersbaugh, owner of the Nehemiah Brainerd B&B in Haddam; Bridgeport’s Beardsley Zoo Director Gregg Dancho, and Don Devivo, president of Middletown-based Dattco transportation were among those who spoke about the initiative.
