Fasano Statement on Sen. Clark Chapin’s Decision Not to Seek Re-election in 2016

November 23, 2015

Hartford – Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano released the following statement regarding State Senator Clark Chapin’s (R-30) announcement that he will not seek re-election to the 30th District State Senate seat he presently holds. Chapin was first elected to the State Senate in November 2012 after serving 12 years in the State House of Representatives. Chapin is currently a Deputy Minority Leader in the Senate Republican Caucus and co-chairs the Regulation Review Committee. He has also served as Ranking Member of the General Assembly’s Environment Committee, a position he has held since 2003, and serves as a member of the Appropriations Committee.

“Clark Chapin is a great person and a great senator. He is extremely thoughtful, hardworking and has always kept our caucus grounded. While he will not seek reelection next year, Clark’s presence in the upcoming legislative session is extremely valued. I know he will continue doing a phenomenal job advocating for his constituents at the Capitol. His leadership, especially on the Environment Committee, will be greatly missed, as will his judiciousness and measured approach to policymaking. It has been a privilege to serve alongside Clark.”
