Sen. Kelly thanks
retiring state auditor Chapin for his service

Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) today commended State Auditor Clark Chapin, whose retirement takes effect today.

“Both as state auditor and as a lawmaker, Clark has been thoughtful, hardworking and dedicated to serving the taxpayers of Connecticut,” Kelly said. “It was an honor to serve with him in the legislature. He is widely respected for his fairness, his judiciousness, and his knowledge of state government. We wish Clark well and we thank him for his decades of public service.”

Chapin was appointed auditor in 2021 following the death of Republican auditor Robert J. Kane to serve the remainder of Kane’s term. Chapin served 16 years in the House and Senate and served on the New Milford Town Council. In the legislature, Chapin served as a Deputy Minority Leader and as Ranking Senator on the Environment Committee and the Regulation Review Committee.

Kelly and House Minority Leader Vincent Candelora (R-North Branford) announced the nomination of former state lawmaker Craig Miner to succeed Chapin on Jan. 31.
