Fazio takes the oath of office as a new state senator

August 27, 2021

Fazio was also welcomed to the state Senate and the GOP caucus by Sen. Kevin Kelly, the Republican Senate minority leader. However, Democrats retain a 23 to 13 seat majority in the state Senate after this seat changed party control.

“In the first few minutes I met Ryan Fazio, it was immediately clear to me that he cares about the people he represents,” Kelly said while serving as an unofficial master of ceremonies at the event. “He cares about our state. He cares about making a difference. He embodies the next generation of Connecticut leadership.”
