Monroe and Newtown state Representative JP Sredzinski has received his legislative committee assignments. He will be a ranking member of the Public Safety and Security Committee, and also a member of the legislature’s Human Services and Higher Education Committees as he starts his third term. Sredzinski is a public safety dispatch supervisor. He says the two other committee assignments will give him a chance to protect some of Connecticut's most vulnerable populations. The Human Services Committee oversees matters relating to the Department of Social Services and the Department of Children and Families. The Higher Education Committee and Employment Advancement Committee oversees job training programs, apprenticeships, institutions of higher education, the Board of Regents and the Office of Higher Education.
