Gary Heller, left, and John Tomlinson both Southbury Training School employees joined hundreds of other state healthcare workers in a rally and march down Capitol Avenue in Hartford Tuesday morning in protest against the state budget cuts. Heller works in direct care of the mentally retarded patients at Southbury. Tomlinson works as a cook. Both are concerned that 44 cooks are among the workers laid off and patient care could suffer as other employees are needed to fill in.
