At the Republican convention held on May 16 at Trackside, Gail Lavielle was unanimously endorsed to run for re-election to represent the 143rd Assembly district, which comprises most of Wilton, the eastern section of Norwalk, and the western part of Westport.
Currently serving her third term in the state House of Representatives, Lavielle is the House Ranking Member of the General Assembly’s Education Committee, one of the legislature’s largest joint standing committees, and a member of the Appropriations and Transportation committees. She is also the House Ranking Member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation.
Lavielle was nominated by fellow Wiltonian Eric Cameron who said, “I have known Gail for many years, and it’s a privilege to nominate her. Certainly no legislator works harder, and Gail also brings exceptional intelligence, integrity, mastery of the most complex issues, and diplomacy to the job. She doesn’t approach issues or bills with preconceived ideas, but instead looks at them analytically and with an open mind.
