"Neil and I worked together to put together a distracted driving informational forum in Newtown geared towards actionable methods to protect our residents. I have reached out to Neil on several occasions to get insight on topics related to school bus safety and pedestrian safety. I met with him in the state capital to see the results of his (and others’) efforts at reducing deaths among our teen drivers and was amazed at the results.
