CFSA Legislator of the YearDecember 8, 2017
I am proud to announce that I have been named the 2017 “Legislator of the Year” by the Connecticut State Firefighters Association. This award recognizes my efforts and dedication in advocating for Connecticut firefighters.
I am extremely grateful to receive this honor from the CSFA. Firefighting is an essential community service and we must do everything we can to help our local Fire Departments those that play such a vital role. That is why this legislative session, I worked across the aisle with Rep. Brian Ohler (R-North Canaan) to organize and lead the bipartisan Fire/EMS Caucus to make fire service legislation a priority. Firefighters, both volunteer and professional, risk their lives on a daily basis to help others and I am proud to advocate for them. I appreciate all the work firefighters do for our communities and will continue to fight our Firefighters.
