Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra has been presented with a “Town Crier” Award from the Connecticut Council of Small Towns.
The recognition was established to honor state legislators and other public officials who have distinguished themselves as outstanding advocates on issues affecting Connecticut’s small towns. Llodra was honored for her longstanding service to Newtown, having become involved in issues in 1970.
The award was presented this week at the 2014 Connecticut Town Meeting. Southbury Representative Arthur O'Neill also received a Town Crier Award.
