State Treasurer Denise Nappier to speak in Greenwich Jan. 8

Connecticut State Treasurer Denise Nappier will be the featured speaker at a League of Women Voters of Greenwich event on Jan. 8.

Ms. Nappier will speak as part of the league’s Connecticut Finances Discussion Part 2 and will discuss both her responsibilities as treasurer and her take on pension issues facing Connecticut. She will offer her take on the ongoing discussions about state employee and teacher pensions as well as what is needed to get those pensions funded. She is also expected to discuss the investment strategy for the pension funds.

The event will begin at 7 p.m.. on Jan. 8 and will take place inside the Cone Room at Town Hall at 101 Field Point Road. A question and answer session will follow Ms. Nappier’s remarks.

Ms. Nappier has been state treasurer since 1998. This is the second part of a series from the league on state finances. The first part took place in September and focused on state spending. Budget issues continue to be a concern in Connecticut with the state again facing a deficit in 2015. Questions about the pension commitments the state has made and how they can be met have been asked frequently and Ms. Nappier is being brought in to answer them.
