Representative Robyn Porter (D- New Haven, Hamden) was sworn into her first term of office Monday, April 28, 2014 as the State Representative for the 94th Assembly District.

“It is an honor and a privilege to represent my district at the Capitol," Rep. Porter said. “I know the General Assembly is approaching the end of session, but I am ready to hit the ground running and make a positive impact for the towns I represent in this short time. There are still many important issues that will need to be addressed this session, and I look forward to engaging in these necessary debates on behalf of my constituents.”

Rep. Porter took the oath of office at a special ceremony lead by Secretary of State Denise Merrill. Rep. Porter was elected during a special election to fill the seat vacated by now State Senator Gary Holder-Winfield. She was surrounded by family and friends, including her grandmother.

“Representative Porter’s addition to the legislature brings another strong voice to the Capitol for the working families of Connecticut, and in particular the residents of New Haven and Hamden,” said Speaker of the House Brendan Sharkey (D-Hamden). “I welcome Representative Porter to the legislature, our House Democratic caucus, and look forward to working with her.”

Rep. Porter is a mother of two children who attended New Haven Public Schools, and works as an administrative assistant for the Communication Workers of America (CWA). She grew up in Queens, New York and has lived in the Newhallville neighborhood of New Haven for 14 years. This is her first time serving as an elected official.
