Honored to Serve as Your State Senator

November 10, 2016


Senator Witkos joins fellow Republican Senators at a state Capitol press conference to announce their election wins.

I want to take a moment to thank my fellow residents in the 8th Senate District for placing your trust in me to represent our communities in Hartford. Being elected to the state Senate is an incredible honor and I am extremely proud to have earned the support of people throughout Avon, Barkhamsted, Canton, Colebrook, Granby, Hartland, Harwinton, New Hartford, Norfolk, Simsbury and Torrington.

I also want to express my sincere appreciation for my family, friends and volunteers who have supported me and my vision for a better Connecticut. As Senate Minority Leader Pro Tempore I will continue to fight for change in Hartford to make our state a great place to live, work and raise our families.

Connecticut is a beautiful state that sadly faces many challenges. Together we have to address these challenges head on. We must work together to reduce burdens on families, grow jobs and create a business environment people can be confident about. Now that the Republican minority party has gained 3 seats in the state Senate, we have tied the Democrats 18-18 and will share control of the chamber. I look forward to this change and hope it will foster more balanced conversations and encourage collaboration across the aisle to do what is in the best interest of our state and our residents.

As I prepare for a new legislative session, I also look forward to hearing from all of you, my constituents. As your state senator, it’s my responsibility to bring your voices and unique ideas to Hartford. I firmly believe that no single person owns a monopoly on good ideas. So when it comes to solving the state’s mounting budget problems or enacting new state policy, I believe every person should have an opportunity to share their ideas for bettering our state.
