Garang Makai started this petition to Governor Dannel Malloy and

I know this is said a lot but I honestly don't know where to start on this one but I'll just dive in and give you the best explanation I can.

The Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) has been for I'm pretty sure decades providing poor service to its citizens and let me make it clear that it's not necessarily the employee's fault but the system its self-needs to be fixed.

My name is Garang Makai. I'm the son of a single mother that lives in a household of 6 and we were only given $49 in benefits for SNAP in the month of August.

We are now to be given $80 in benefits for the month of September and October.

Which is NOT enough to fund our household. We were getting over $300 in benefits just last year.

After calling countless times and waiting hours just to get help from a representative to get our Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits reinstated I've had to now to file for hearing that has since been REVIEWED but I've yet to get a response about OUR hearing from the state.

That is but one example, I've heard countless stories and if you're from Connecticut you probably have too.

The citizens of Connecticut lean on to DSS for food, health, and even cash benefits if needed. 

These are basic life necessities that people need to make a living and at the age of 20 and as a college student I am truly burnt out by this system.

It's time to push for a change and this time the right way.

I urge everyone to please sign this petition so we can get the attention of the representatives of the state, the governor, and the lieutenant.

Please share and let's finally get our citizens served better.

Thank You.
