I am honored to serve you and be your voice in Hartford as Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I make sure that we spend taxpayers' money wisely and balance Connecticut's budget in a responsible way - that means protecting the vital programs and critical services that Connecticut's most vulnerable depend on.
In addition to serving on the Appropriations Committee, I serve on the Education and Government Administration & Elections Committee. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have concerns involving these committees, current legislation or any other matter.
Thank you again for your interest. The bedrock of a strong democracy is an active citizenry, and I truly appreciate your taking the time to be informed and make your voice heard.
