Welcome to my legislative web page. Along with representing Hamden in the General Assembly, I am honored to serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Our democracy works best when the public is involved, so I encourage you to share your opinion and ask any questions you may have about our state government by emailing or calling my office. I also invite you to sign up for my email updates so I can let you know about the latest happenings at the State Capitol.
Thank you for visiting and please stay in touch!
