Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra has been recognized by the Connecticut Bar Association. She was presented with the 2017 Distinguished Public Service Award. The honor was presented to Llodra by Sandy Hook residents and CBA President Monte Frank at the organization's annual Celebrate with the Stars event last month.
The Newtown Bee reports that Llodra was selected for the award because of her meaningful relationship to Connecticut, how she has distinguished herself in her profession, and the significant contribution she has made to society in addition to or outside of her area of endeavor.
The event recognizes judges, lawyers, and professionals who make a difference through their work.
