HARTFORD- State Representative William A. Petit, Jr. (R-22) achieved a perfect record for votes cast on the floor of the state House of Representatives during the 2018 legislative session.

Representative Petit was present and voted for all 317 votes taken on the state House floor during the 2018 session, according to voting record data released last week by the House Clerk’s Office.

“The residents of the 22nd district have entrusted me with the privilege of representing their voice in Hartford and I am proud to say that I have done so this year on every issue that was called for debate by the legislature,” said Rep. Petit, whose district includes Plainville and the western edge of New Britain.  “I take my legislative responsibility very seriously, and my voting record proudly reflects my commitment to representing my constituents to the best of my ability.”

Representative Petit serves on the Appropriations, Public Health, and Commerce Committees in the General Assembly.

Petit, Martin Present Flags for Proper Retirement

Posted on July 2, 2018 by admin


Plainville – State Rep. William A. Petit, Jr. (R-22) and State Sen. Henri Martin (R-31) presented two boxes of worn American flags to Plainville’s American Legion Post 33 for proper retirement on Flag Day (June 14), where the flags were disposed of during a formal ceremony. The worn flags were turned in by local residents during a collection event hosted by the legislators earlier this month.

Per the American Legion, the Ceremony for Disposal of Unserviceable Flags is outlined in Resolution No. 440, passed by the 19th National Convention of The American Legion in New York, Sept. 20-23, 1937. The ceremony has been an integral part of American Legion ritual since that date.

Anyone who missed the collection event may contact the American Legion Post 33 at (860)747-9074 for further information on turning in their worn or tattered American Flags, so that they may be properly retired.
