State Senator-elect Will Haskell may not get sworn in until Jan. 9, but that isn’t stopping the freshman senator from getting to work already. He’s been out and about meeting with as many people as possible, from constituents to Wilton’s first selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice to executives from Optimum. GOOD Morning Wilton was on hand Wednesday, Nov. 28, when Haskell stopped by Wilton’s The Painted Cookie to talk to small business owner Susan Schmitt, and to learn about her business and her concerns.

Haskell says Wilton residents can expect to see a lot more of him in town, especially since it was one of two towns in his district where he didn’t win a majority of votes. He said one of the first things he’s going to focus on in Hartford is securing the funding to build the pedestrian bridge to connect the Wilton train station with Wilton Center.
