Dathan Takes Oath of Office

January 9, 2019

Today, I was officially sworn in as the State Representative from the 142nd House District in a morning ceremony in the State Capitol. As I join the legislature, I look forward to serving my constituents in Norwalk and New Canaan, making government more responsive and working hard for them in the upcoming session.

I will be serving as the Vice Chair of the Insurance and Real Estate Committee and will also be a member of the Appropriations and Human Services Committees.

The Insurance and Real Estate Committee has cognizance of all matters relating to insurance law and real estate law. The Appropriations committee is the General Assembly’s budget-writing committee. Other issues under the committee's jurisdiction include matters relating to state employees' salaries, benefits and retirement, teachers' retirement and veterans' pensions and collective bargaining agreements and arbitration awards for all state employees.

Happy to share with my children and family on Opening Day!!!

The Human Services Committee has cognizance over all matters relating to the Department of Social Services, including institutions under its jurisdiction, the Office of Protection and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities and the Department of Rehabilitation Services.

Lucy represents the 142nd District in Norwalk and New Canaan.
