Wilton’s State Representative Gail Lavielle (R-143) achieved a 100% voting record for all roll call votes taken on the floor of the State House of Representatives during both the 2017 Regular Session and the Special Session, which did not end until Nov. 15. According to the data released by the House Clerk’s office, she cast every one of the 417 roll call votes called this year in the House.
“There are always many long hours during a legislative session, but it is essential to me that the residents of the 143rd district are represented at the Capitol at all times,” Lavielle says. “This year, although the unpredictability and length of the special session made scheduling difficult, it was my priority to be always present in Hartford for my constituents in Norwalk, Westport, and Wilton.”
Perfect attendance and voting is very difficult to achieve, and only one-third of Lavielle’s legislative colleagues were able to attain it this year.
The next regular session of the General Assembly will convene in February of 2018.
Lavielle represents the 143rd district, which includes parts of Norwalk, Westport, and Wilton. She is the Ranking Member of the General Assembly’s Education Committee and a member of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee and the Transportation Committee.
