Steven J. Stafstrom, Jr., a litigation attorney in Pullman & Comley's Bridgeport office, was presented with the Bridgeport Regional Business Council's (BRBC) "Regional Impact Legislator of the Year Award" at the group's annual meeting on June 23, 2016. Stafstrom, a member of the Connecticut General Assembly, represents the 129th Assembly District (Bridgeport) and serves on the Finance, Revenue and Bonding, Judiciary and Environmental Committees.
BRBC's mission is to increase economic opportunities for the people of the Bridgeport region by creating an environment for business expansion, retention, and recruitment that will result in jobs and growth in the tax base. Each year, the BRBC award is presented to a regional legislator with a voting record in support of business and legislation that improves the economy.
"I want to thank the Bridgeport Regional Business Council for this honor and for their efforts in working with our regional legislative delegation to help local business grow and create jobs," Representative Stafstrom said. "I pledge to continue to support policies to improve our business climate, develop programs to prepare our young people for future employment and work tirelessly to grow Bridgeport as the regional economic driver that the state needs it to be."
