I was honored and humbled to be officially elected by my colleagues as Speaker of the House of Representatives when the Connecticut General Assembly convened on Wednesday. This legislative session will be a challenging year for lawmakers. Nonetheless, I am excited to get to work on helping solve the problems facing our state – work that I hope can be completed in a bipartisan fashion.
