Lavielle, O’Dea achieve perfect voting records

State Reps. Gail Lavielle (R-143) and Tom O’Dea (R-125) each 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.

Both representatives 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 said in a press release.

“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.”

Only one-third of Lavielle and O’Dea’s legislative colleagues were able to attain perfect attendance and voting this year.

The General Assembly’s next regular session convenes in February.

Lavielle represents the 143rd district, which includes parts of Norwalk, Westport and Wilton.

O’Dea represents southwestern Wilton and New Canaan in the 125th legislative district.

State Sen. Toni Boucher (R-43)’s voting record is not yet available.
