        I was thinking the same thing. How do I help get the ball rolling in CT? Do I write up a flier/proposal and send it to all the groomers in CT? I'd love to be a part of something like this, but feel so small and inexperienced with gov't workings that I get lost and overwhelmed. If someone could point me in the right direction as to where to start, I'd love to do it.
