State Representative Dave Yaccarino attended a send-off rally for Special Olympics athletes that will be competing in the USA Games hosted by Seattle, Washington, in July. Yaccarino was joined by several members of the legislature to provide words of encouragement to the men and women that will be representing Connecticut in the national competition. Rep. Yaccarino said, “I am so proud of all of the athletes for all that they have accomplished so far. Connecticut is rooting for you and we are all so very proud. I have no doubt that they will be victorious.”
“I would also like to give a special thanks to Laurie-Jean Hannan of North Haven who is the Connecticut Special Olympics Coordinator,” Rep. Yaccarino added.
