It is an honor for me to serve you in the Connecticut General Assembly. As Chairman of the Education Committee, I am constantly seeking to give our children the tools they need to learn and grow to their full potential. If you have suggestions for additional steps we can take in the coming years to improve education in our state, please contact me and let me know.
In addition to serving on the Education Committee, I chair the Subcommittee for Education on the Appropriations Committee and serve on the Government Administration and Elections Committee. If you have concerns involving these committees - or any other area that the legislature addresses - please just send me an email, write me a letter or give me a call.
Thank you again for your interest. The bedrock of a strong democracy is an informed, active citizenry, and I truly appreciate your taking the time to be informed and make your voice heard.
