(New Haven, CT) — Governor Malloy has signed a proclamation declaring December 21, 2012 a “Day of Mourning” in the State of Connecticut.
The City of New Haven will participate in a state-wide moment of silence at 9:30 AM. The moment of science will then be followed by the ringing of City Hall's bells twenty-six times in honor of each life lost last Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary.
Mayor DeStefano has also set-up a one-time, voluntary payroll deduction for City employees to contribute to charities serving the families of the victims of the tragedy in Newtown. New Haven remains resolute in the effort at both the federal and state levels lobbying for stricter gun laws.
