HARTFORD – State Rep. Jan R. Giegler (R-138) has earned a one hundred percent voting record for all roll call votes taken on the floor of the House of Representatives during the 2013 Regular Session. The House Clerk’s Office released the data on members’ votes this week.
“There were 424 votes taken this year on issues as controversial as gun control and as beneficial as pool safety at schools,” said Rep. Giegler, who serves as the Ranking Member of the Public Safety and Security Committee. “I am proud to have been there to represent the interests of Danbury, New Fairfield and Ridgefield on every vote as my fellow lawmakers and I were asked to weigh in on some important and far-reaching legislation. I think it is of the utmost importance to make sure that the people of the 138th District have a voice in the lawmaking process, and I am honored to have been their voice on every issue this year.”
Perfect attendance is very difficult to achieve, and an estimated 27 percent of her legislative colleagues in the House were able to attain it this year.
Rep. Giegler, serving as the Assistant Republican Leader in the General Assembly, has achieved a perfect voting record six of the past seven years during the General Assembly’s regular legislative sessions, which included over 1,500 votes cast on behalf of the people of the 138th District.
The 2013 legislative session began in January and ended on June 5, 2013. The 2014 session, which is the second year of Rep. Giegler’s sixth term, will begin in February.
