Trumbull resident Paul Lavoie was appointed to the CT Low Wage Employer Advisory Board by House Republican Leader, Themis Klarides.  

The CT Low Wage Employer Advisory Board was created from Public Act 15-05, Section 485 and advises the Department of Labor and other departments on the implementation of the low wage employer fee, public assistance use among working state residents, and improvements to the quality of public assistance program affecting such residents.

“I am delighted to be recommended by Representative David Rutigliano and appointed by Republican Leader Klarides”, said Lavoie, who serves on the Trumbull Board of Education. “I am looking forward to serving in this important role as we work with large businesses to create and maintain high wage paying jobs and enhancing the support system for low paying jobs”

“Paul has always demonstrated the ability to lead and form consensus and he will be an important asset to the board while they perform their duties”, said Rutigliano (R-123).  “Paul has a strong track record of public service and a significant business background that will be valuable to the Department of Labor”

Lavoie is employed as vice president, sales, marketing and human resources for ETTER Engineering, a Bristol-based manufacturer.  

In addition to the Board of Education, he recently served as chairman of the Trumbull Republican Town Committee and serves on the Board of Directors of the Central CT Chamber of Commerce and the CBIA Public Policy Committee.  

Paul and his wife Cindy are 18 year residents of Trumbull and the parents of four adult children.
