HARTFORD –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 November 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,” said Rep. Lavielle. “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 Rep. Lavielle’s legislative colleagues were able to attain it this year.
The next regular session of the General Assembly will convene in February of 2016.
