Board of Ed member, new state Rep., to serve on Education Committee

A freshman lawmaker is putting his professional background to use in the General Assembly.  Danbury Representative Michael Ferguson will serve on the Education Committee, which will be the center of debate over ECS funding, and concerns all matters relating to the Department of Education; local and regional boards of education and the substantive law of collective bargaining covering teachers and professional employees of such boards; vocational rehabilitation; and the Commission on the Arts.


He was also appointed to the Transportation Committee and the Internship Committee, a statutorily created Committee whose principal responsibility is the development and administration of Connecticut General Assembly interns.


Ferguson says as a member of the Danbury Board of Education, he has first hand knowledge of how the state’s education policies and budget allotments directly affect students’ growth and development.  He wants to fix the Education Cost Sharing formula so that all municipalities have all the resources they need.


The 2017 legislative session runs until June 7th.
