HARTFORD – On Tuesday, House Republican Leader Themis Klarides named newly elected State Rep. Joe Zullo to the “Housing,” “Veteran’s Affairs,” and “Finance, Revenue and Bonding” Committees.
“I am ready to get to work on behalf of the residents of East Haven,” said Rep. Zullo. “While door knocking during the campaign, residents voiced a clear desire for our State government to start reining in reckless spending and expressed disappointment about newly proposed taxes and the implementation of tolls. Moving forward, I will fight against wasteful spending and the newly proposed taxes that threaten to hurt middle class families in East Haven and across Connecticut .”
