Senator Kelly and Representative Hoydick Achieve Perfect Voting Records for 2013 Session

August 23, 2013

Hartford – State Senator Kevin C. Kelly (R-21) and State Representative Laura Hoydick (R-120) have both earned one hundred percent voting records for all roll call votes taken on the floor of the State House of Representatives and State Senate during the 2013 Regular Session. The House and Senate Clerk’s Office released the data on members’ votes this week.

“Serving as your State Senator, it is a pleasure to represent the people of Stratford in the General Assembly,” said Senator Kelly. “This year’s legislative session highlighted many of the challenges and opportunities facing our state, and I worked to improve the quality of life for families, seniors and everyone who calls our state home. In order to best represent your voice, I believe that making each and every vote is an important step toward continuing this important work in Hartford.”

“This year was marked by many important votes, and I am pleased to have cast all 424 votes in the House this session,” said Rep. Hoydick. “It is my priority to be present in Hartford for the people of the 120th District. There were many long hours, especially this session, but it is essential to me that the voices of Stratford residents are heard at the capitol.”

Perfect attendance is very difficult to achieve, and less than one third of their legislative colleagues were able to attain it this year.

Missed votes can be the result of everything from personal illness to the attendance of a funeral, and a perfect voting record – particularly throughout multiple years – is indicative of deliberate dedication and commitment.

The next regular session of the legislature will convene in February of 2014.
