SustiNet rally and vigil

Tuesday the SustiNet and Health Care Partnership bills were delivered to the Governor for her to sign (hopefully). The next day, the Interfaith Fellowship for Universal Health Care organized a vigil and rally to encourage the Governor to sign the bill. They started with a vigil outside the Governor’s office and then walked from there, wearing red SustiNet T-shirts and carrying signs, to the Governor’s mansion in Hartford, where about 65 people gathered for the rally. Two state legislators participated in the event, Rep. Betsy Ritter (Waterford and Montville) and Tim Rep. O’Brien (New Britain and Newington). There were a few speakers and a lot of chanting. We hope that showing our support at this rally demonstrates to the Governor how strongly we feel about having this bill signed into law.
