Republicans on Tuesday night unanimously endorsed Tony Scott as their candidate for State Representative in the 112th District at the convention held at Monroe’s Town Council Chambers. Based on the state’s redrawn redistricting map, the district now includes all of Monroe, about half of Easton and a portion of Trumbull.
“It is truly humbling to have the unanimous support of Republican delegates from Monroe, Easton and Trumbull to represent them up in Hartford,” the current State Rep. Scott stated in a press release. “To have their trust to be their voice in the legislature is very meaningful to me.”
Scott decided to run for office again because he still feels there is work to be done and is concerned about the direction of the state—particularly Connecticut’s high cost of living, crime, and lack of support for Connecticut’s businesses, according to the press release.
“I promise to staunchly serve the residents of 112th District in Hartford, being the voice they deserve,” Scott stated. “I ask for my constituents to please speak up and let me know your issues so I can help address them like I have done during this recent session that just ended.”
Scott is currently finishing up his first term as representative and serves on the Public Safety and Security, Human Services, and Higher Education and Employee Advancement Committees.
