Also in attendance were Mayor Ryan Bingham from Torrington and DEP Commissioner Designate Daniel C. Esty and his wife Elizabeth.
The Council was pleased to award State Representative Craig Miner of the 66th District the “2010 Sportsman of the Year Award.” Representative Miner’s knowledgeable and principled work as a member on the Environment Committee, a leader of the State Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, and a member of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission; along with Craig’s willingness to listen to and work with his various constituencies, were recognized by the Council leadership.
