Hartford, CT – State Senator Clark Chapin (R-New Milford) once again achieved a perfect voting record during the 2013 session. Numbers released by the Senate Clerk’s office earlier this year show that Senator Chapin cast votes for all 628 roll call votes taken on the floor of the State Senate. Prior to joining the Senate in 2013, Senator Chapin had cast over 2,200 consecutive votes as a member of the House. Including this year, Senator Chapin has served in the legislature for seven consecutive years without missing a session vote.

“It has always been important to me to provide strong representation for my community at the Capitol,” said Senator Chapin. “My vote represents the voice of our whole district, and I am proud to have shared our voice during every voting opportunity.”

Perfect attendance over consecutive sessions is very difficult to achieve. Less than one third of all Assembly members were able to maintain this level of attendance in 2013 alone.
“Looking ahead to next year, I would like to renew my commitment to take part in as many Senate votes as possible. I encourage all my constituents to voice their concerns and opinions to me over the next few months as we prepare for the 2014 legislative session,” said Senator Chapin.

The next legislative session will convene in February of 2014. Constituents can share their thoughts with Senator Chapin by contacting him at [email protected] or 800-842-1421.

Senator Chapin is a Ranking Member of the General Assembly’s Energy and Technology Committee and Environment Committee. In addition, he serves on the Appropriations Committee and Regulation Review Committee. He was first elected to the state Legislature in 2000 and served in the state House for six terms. He was elected in November 2012 to the State Senate.
