State Rep. Gail K. Hamm (D- East Hampton, Middletown CT) was recently honored on the floor of the House of Representatives for her 14 years of service to the State of Connecticut.
Rep. Hamm has decided not to seek re-election in November and as is customary, was allowed to lead the chamber as honorary Speaker of the House through the passage of a single bill.
“Thank you for all the support and kindness through the years,” said Rep. Hamm. “The General Assembly is a unique place where we are all family. I feel successful in what I was able to accomplish. I’ve enjoyed my committee work and advocacy, I’ll never forget it.”
Many of her colleagues spoke, including House Majority Leader Brendan Sharkey (D-Hamden). “Representative Hamm will always be remembered for her advocacy and passion for helping children. Your courage and bravery are an inspiration. We will miss you,” he said.
Rep. Hamm was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1999.
She plans to spend more time with her family and friends and said she will continue advocating for children’s issues.
