Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy visited Family Centers' Greenwich Head Start Preschool as part of his summer tour Monday morning
Senator Murphy said he wanted to visit the facility because he is interested in preventing cuts to head start programs around the state due to the sequester. He toured the preschools classrooms, interacted with students and talked to Family Centers' staff.
Family Centers' President Bob Arnold says their head start preschool has already felt the effects the sequester.
Senator Murphy says while he understands there need to be cuts, they shouldn't be to head start programs.
Senator Murphy plans to continue visiting programs effected by the sequester throughout the state.
