When the state legislature convenes for the 2015 session on Jan. 7, Wilton’s representatives will have some new committee assignments along with returning to familiar seats. The town will be represented by ranking members on several powerful committees, and will have a voice in judiciary, financial, education, and transportation matters.
Sen. Toni Boucher (R-26) will join the Judiciary Committee of the General Assembly. It is a body that “is extremely busy laying the groundwork for the state’s future in many areas of law. Especially critical is overseeing nominations relating to future judges and members of the Board of Pardons and Paroles,” Ms. Boucher said in a press release this week.
