State Senator Toni Boucher (R-26) achieved a perfect senate voting record for 2017, according to a press release issued by her office. Her voting record was classified as 100% in a report from the Connecticut General Assembly Senate Clerk. Senators voted more than 470 times during the 2017 session and special sessions.
Wilton’s state representatives — Gail Lavielle (R-143) and Tom O’Dea (R-125) — also achieved perfect voting records, casting 417 roll call votes.
“This was an especially difficult and long year for our part-time legislature,” Boucher said. “Juggling the responsibilities of families, full-time jobs and the longest legislative session in our state’s history was difficult. However, the need for elected officials to advocate for legislation to serve the best interests of Connecticut taxpayers has never been more important.
“I strongly believe in the citizen legislature process established by the Connecticut Constitution,” she added. “For it to be effective, it demands the full participation of those elected to represent the people. It is a duty I take seriously and I am honored that the people of the 26th senate district have entrusted me with this responsibility.”
Boucher represents Bethel, New Canaan, Redding, Ridgefield, Weston, Westport, and Wilton.
