Serving the 98th Assembly District
Legislative Office Building, Room 4024
Hartford, CT 06106-1591
In June, the legislature adjourned for the year and I wrapped up my first session as your state representative. I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you some of the things I’ve been working on at the Capitol and some important pieces of legislation we passed this year.
Listening to you
I do my best to stay in touch with my constituents as much as possible. It’s why I sent you a survey earlier this year (and will do so again next year!) and hold “Coffee and Conversation” office hours regularly so that people can easily tell me what’s on their minds. For as long as I have this job, listening and accessibility will always be my biggest priorities.
Working across the aisle
Last year when I ran for office I told people I wanted to work across party lines and in my first six months I tried to do just that. 12 of the 15, or 80%, of the bills I either sponsored or co-sponsored this year had a Republican co-sponsor. In addition, I was honored to be elected co-chair of the Young Legislators Caucus which is comprised of legislators from both parties under the age of 40 who work together on issues facing our generation and state.
Fighting for local families
By far my favorite part of being a state representative has been assisting Guilford and Branford families when they need a little help. Whether it’s a problem with DMV or an issue with health insurance, it’s been a privilege to assist dozens of people from our community. If there is something you or someone you know could use assistance with, please don’t ever hesitate to contact me!
It’s been an honor to serve as your voice in Hartford and I hope you will always feel free to let me know how I can do a better job for you and your family.
