Sen. Stillman will not seek re-election
State Sen. Andrea Stillman announced Wednesday she will not run for re-election this fall.
Stillman, a Democrat from Waterford, is Senate chairwoman of the legislature’s Education Committee and has been a member of the Connecticut General Assembly for two decades.
“Looking back on my 22 years in the House and Senate, I feel immensely proud of the work I have done for my constituents, and deeply privileged to have been entrusted with such a remarkable opportunity,” Stillman said in a press release.
“There will be time for further reflection in the months ahead,” she continued, “but for now my attention is fixed on a number of initiatives I aim to see passed before the close of the 2014 legislative session. There is much work left to be done and I intend to see it through.”
Stillman has opposed the expansion of keno gambling in the state. She also played a key role in crafting 2012 legislation that reformed education laws in the state.
