Obituary

Betty Boukus’ family was honored at a BOE meeting in Plainville, Monday, Jan. 9.

Carl J. Lozefski PLAINVILLE — Carl J. “John”Lozefski, 71, of Plainville, passed away peacefully on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017, after a lengthy battle with cancer surrounded by his family. He was the loving husband of Linda (Silva) Lozefski for 50 wonderful years. John was born on June 13, 1945, in New Britain, son to the late Carl and Josephine (Vasile) Lozefski. He proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy, three tours in Vietnam. John was a self-employed electrician by trade and owner of John’s Electric. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle, hanging out at his “home away from home”

Robertson Airport, and walking his beloved Dobermans, Thor and Max. In addition to his wife, Linda, John is survived by his son, John Lozefski and his wife, Marisol, of Plainville; his daughter, Dawn Lozefski, of Plainville; his three grandchildren, Arielle, Isabel, and Samantha; his three sisters, Catherine, MaryLou, and JoAnn; and many other caring family members. A Memorial Service in Celebration of John’s life was held on Wednesday, Jan. 11, at Bailey Funeral Home, 48 Broad St., Plainville. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to a charity of your choice in John’s name. For more information or to leave online expressions of sympathy, please visit www.Bailey-FuneralHome.com.

COMMENTARY

Opportunities for positive change abound By State Sen. Henri Martin

state regulations that make operating a small business in Connecticut more difficult, if not impossible. I would also like to see the legislature finally address the state spending cap.

Opportunities abound as we head into a new year and a new Legislative Session. Republicans and Democrats reached an agreement for cooperative control of the now 18-18 State Senate, and House Republicans added eight new seats. This leaves Democrats with just a seven-seat majority in the House. It’s been a long time since Republicans have had the numbers necessary to affect real change at the capitol. In the Senate, we are already developing plans for moving the Connecticut economy forward and creating sustainable state budgets. Personally, I would like to

State Sen. Henri Martin

reduce the number of burdensome and unnecessary

Recently, the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce asked the legislators that represent their towns to repeal a state statute allowing employee collective bargaining agreements to be approved without a vote by the General Assembly. Under this law, if the legislature takes no action within 30 days of an agreement being filed, it automatically passes. The chambers want such agreements to be approved by a roll call vote. I wholeheartedly agree.

It’s important that this chamber consortium is speaking out about this matter and I hope other chambers, business leaders, and organizations will join them.
