State Representative Devin Carney (R-23) achieved a 100 percent voting record during the regular 2015 Legislative Session according to statistics compiled by the House Clerk’s Office.
This year, Rep. Carney cast his vote on all 379 separate pieces of legislation that made it to the floor of the House of Representatives. Only about 20 percent of legislators achieve perfect attendance each year. In addition, Carney attended every committee meeting and public hearing during the 2015 session.
“Throughout my first term representing the citizens of the 23rd district, I have made it a priority to be present for every debate and every vote,” said Carney. “The people of Lyme, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, and Westbrook put their faith in me to serve as their representative and they deserve a voice on every piece of legislation that comes before the legislature. While I am proud to receive a perfect score, this is simply my duty to my constituents and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Carney, who represents the 23rd district in the General Assembly, is a House Republican Chair and Founding Member of Young Legislators Caucus and serves on the legislature’s committees on Environment, Transportation, and Higher Education & Employment Advancement.
The next regular session of the legislature will convene in February 2016.
Carney represents the 23rd district communities of Lyme, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook and the southern section of Westbrook.
