REP. WRIGHT CASTS A VOTE ON ALL 271 VOTES TAKEN IN THE STATE HOUSE
State Representative Christopher Wright (D-Bristol ) did not miss a vote taken in the state House of Representative this year and voted on the 271 votes taken during the session.
According to the Clerk of the House, the 2010 individual records reflect a total number of 271 votes were taken for the 2010 Regular Session, The June 21, 2010 Veto Session and the June 21, 2010 Special Session.
“I was pleased to learn that I was present and voted on the 271 votes taken in the House,” Rep. Wright said. “While, I strive to be on hand for all debates and votes, sometimes there are circumstances beyond any legislator’s control that prevents a vote, like an illness or a serious family matter.”
“I will continue to strive to be able to vote on all issues and hope no unforeseen events prevent me from doing just that,” Rep. Wright said.
“Rep. Wright’s 100 percent voting record is evidence of the seriousness with which he takes his job as a state representative,” said House Speaker Christopher G. Donovan (D-Meriden). “I congratulate Chris on his dedication to representing his constituents on the many important issues they care about.”
