State Sen. Derek Slap of West Hartford, who represents the 5th District, was presented with the award by AARP on Wednesday.
Members of the Connecticut AARP joined State Sen. Derek Slap (D-West Hartford) in the State Capitol Wednesday to give him their AARP “Utilities Champion Award” for his legislative work in 2018 opposing a bill that could have led to senior citizens paying more for basic landline phone service, losing access to free telephone directories, or possibly losing their landline service.
Slap voted in committee against that 2018 bill, which ultimately failed to pass in the state legislature.
