Additionally, she has championed funding for BH Care, a provider of essential behavioral health services, and has successfully advocated for more Education Cost Sharing dollars to support local schools. Her efforts have also led to funding for Short Beach Traffic Calming, which will enhance the safety and livability of the neighborhood.

She collaborates with Birth to Three program providers, advocating for increased funding for early intervention services. A steadfast advocate for advancing quality early care, Rep. Comey is dedicated to enhancing accessible, affordable, and equitable childcare for all Connecticut families.

Inducted into the 2019 Branford Education Hall of Fame for her tireless efforts in improving education in the town, she is proud of the state’s record investments in mental health and schools.
