January 4, 2017

Josh Elliott was sworn in as state representative Wednesday during the opening day ceremony of the 2017 legislative session at the State Capitol in Hartford.

"I'm looking forward to serving my neighbors and friends from Hamden,” Rep. Elliott said. “As I said at the doors, I come into this experience with a goal and direction, and it is important that my constituents know that there's nothing I enjoy more than a good discussion. I am open to having my mind changed on issues based on a strong argument. Know that you can talk to me and I will be receptive. We need to keep our legislature blue and that can only happen with the best ideas making their way to the forefront. Thank you for your support."
