During the 2014 National Lead and Healthy Housing Conference held February 11 - 13, 2014 in Washington, D.C., I was privileged to accept on behalf of New Haven's Mayor, Toni Harp, a Congressional Certificate of Special Recognition.

In addition, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro was recognized by the National Center for Healthy Housing. Congresswoman DeLauro, is Minority Chair of the Sub-Committee that oversees CDC funding. She was instrumental in restoring funding to much needed programs, specifically, lead poisoning prevention. We in the Health Department are grateful to have the services of our Congresswoman and our two Senators.
