HARTFORD-Getting the state’s ailing budget back in the black and unemployed Connecticut residents back to work are top priorities for Kevin Skulczyck (R-45), who was sworn in today as state representative for the 45th General Assembly District covering Griswold, Lisbon, Plainfield, Sterling and Voluntown. Rep. Skulczyck was among 20 freshman Republican legislators who vowed to serve their districts over a two-year term. Skulczyck has stayed busy since Election Day, meeting with state and local officials to discuss important issues in the district. Additionally, Skulczyck plans to organize office hours around the 45th District over the next few months. “People in the towns I represent placed tremendous faith in me on Election Day, and it’s an honor I take seriously,” Skulczyck said. “Our state faces significant challenges, but in those hurdles I see opportunity-a chance to restructure state government in a way that will create lasting financial stability.” First-year legislator state Rep. Kevin Skulczyck was also appointed to three legislative committees by House Republican Leader Themis Klarides. Skulczyck will serve on the Commerce and Veterans Affairs committees and the Public Safety and Security committee. Kevin was particularly thrilled with his appointment to the Public Safety and Security committee as a retired corrections officer. The Commerce Committee is responsible for promoting job growth in our state working with the Department of Economic and Community Development, and the Connecticut Development Authority. “I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get Connecticut back on steady fiscal footing and common sense budgeting,” said Rep. Skulczyck.
