The second annual “Speak Up” event hosted by Redding League of Women Voters takes place tonight. The grassroots event is meant to help people become better informed via direct dialogue between Redding residents and elected officials and town employees. State Senator Will Haskell and state Representatives Raghib Allie-Brennan and Anne Hughes were also invited. Town employees invited to be on the panel include the first selectman, social services director, chief of police, superintendent of schools, fire chiefs, among others. Residents will have an opportunity to ask questions and/or voice their concerns during the event from 7:45 to 9:45 pm in the Redding Community Center.
