“I am excited to take on the organization at a time when women’s issues are playing a major role in this year’s elections,” remarked Kozin, who previously served as Treasurer for the organization. “Laura and I will seize the opportunity to increase the volume of women’s voices now and after the election, which will make a difference for Connecticut women.”
