Women's Bipartisan Caucus, Nonprofit Funding Help, Listen to the Radio

January 27, 2023

With 69 members, the number of women elected in the Connecticut General Assembly is growing! This week, myself, my co-chair State Rep. Nicole Klarides-Ditria, Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz and the Women's Bipartisan Caucus welcomed some of our newest members!


Deputy Speaker Training
Ahead of the 2023 Legislative Session, I was named Deputy Speaker of the House, one of the top leadership positions in the legislature. One of the primary duties is to preside over the House of Representatives when the Speaker is absent from the Chamber and I began training this week with my colleagues on fulfilling that duty.
