State Representative David Rutigliano has announced that he will be seeking re-election to the Connecticut House of Representatives this November, representing the 123rd district of Trumbull.

“It has been the honor of my life to represent the fine people of Trumbull in Hartford”, said Rutigliano in a press release Tuesday morning. “My job as the state representative is to fight for the people I represent and to make sure I do right by the people that sent me to Hartford.”

Rutigliano is known at the capitol as a “common sense” Republican who is in touch with his constituents and places the needs of the people he represents above all else.

“I’ve made it my priority to focus solutions to restore our economy, helping create opportunities for our young people, so if they choose they can stay here and thrive and start their own families,” said Rutigliano. “Connecticut does not always have to be last and on the losing end of things.

“If we can restore balance to our system of taxation, reform regulations, and fix our aging infrastructure we can turn things around,” he added. “Connecticut has so much to offer if we could just set our economy free.”

Rutigliano said when he earns re-elections his focus will remain the same — “doing the right thing for the people I represent.”

He earned support from Trumbull’s Republican leadership Tuesday.

“Representative Rutigliano has been a rational and reasonable voice in Hartford, representing the residents of Trumbull with energy, enthusiasm and passion” said Paul Lavoie, Trumbull RTC Chairman. “Over the past three-plus years, David has always had the interests of Trumbull in mind as he focuses on the important issues of economic growth and opportunities for our families to continue to thrive in Trumbull”  

“I proudly support David on his re-election to the State House of Representatives” added Lavoie.

Representative Rutigliano serves on the legislature’s Labor and Public Employees committee as ranking member.

Additionally, he also serves on the General Law committee, and the Finance Revenue and Bonding Committee.
