Trick or Treat Day Bill 253 goes to Capitol Hill!
Now is the time for action if you want to create a Trick or Treat Day that would fall on the last Saturday of October (NOT changing Halloween, making a separate day just for the kids to go out to collect candy) we would appreciate if you could send an email (in PDF or Word) to GAEtestimony@cga.ct.gov. Please include your full name and reference that you are supporting Senate Bill 253, the Trick or Treat Day bill. Send a quick note telling them why you support this idea. We’ve done our best and hope you will make your voices heard!
Last year after hearing from so many of their listeners Anna & Raven began the discussion of creating a safer, standardized day for children to enjoy trick or treating. This effort gained strength with the help of thousands of your signatures and was then presented to Senator Bob Duff of the 25th district. Yesterday Bill 253 was presented before the Government Administration and Elections Committee with Anna & Raven in attendance with public comments for the Senator’s and Representatives.
As we settled in I knew it was bound to be a long day!

Senator Bob Duff showed us the ropes of Connecticut legislative work and we were both pretty sure we were doing it as well as anyone!
Great to see @AnnaZapOnAir and @JayRaven yesterday in my office at the State Capitol. Raven had to immediately nap after looking at all the work on my desk. Anna was less fazed. (She’s a mom.) @AnnaAndRaven @STAR999radio pic.twitter.com/NwBh9HAShc

Then after a long wait it was almost show time! Anna checked in one last moment before we headed into the hearing room.
Somebody’s got design’s on this place… or on this chair and desk anyways!
