Perfect Voting Record Now Spans 11 Years

The Senate Clerk’s office has reported that State Senator Andrew Roraback (R-30 th ) cast all 589 votes that were taken in the State Senate during the 2005 Legislative Session. That brings his career total to 5,350 consecutive votes cast over his entire eleven-year career in the General Assembly. Senator Roraback cast his first vote in January of 1995. Senator Roraback is the only current member of the General Assembly to have gone six years in the House of Representatives and five years in the Senate without missing a vote.

“Serving as a state legislator is a responsibility which I try to take very seriously,” said Senator Roraback. “The people of my district can only have their interests represented if I am present when votes are taken. The individuals I represent work hard in their jobs and I feel blessed that neither illness nor other emergencies have interfered with my ability to work on their behalf.”
Senator Roraback currently represents the 30 th district communities of Brookfield, Canaan, Cornwall, Goshen, Kent, Litchfield, Morris, New Milford, North Canaan, Salisbury, Sharon, Torrington, Warren, Washington, and Wincheste
