New Haven’s Megna won’t run, becomes 21st to exit legislature
Rep. Robert W. Megna, D-New Haven, who adopted a consumer advocate’s role as co-chair of the Insurance and Real Estate Committee, added his name Saturday to the list of legislators who will not seek re-election to the General Assembly this fall.
“It has been an amazing experience of empowerment for the betterment of the people of not only my district but of all Connecticut,” Megna said.
Megna is 19th legislator in the 151-seat House and the 21st overall to announce his retirement. Two of the 36 senators also are not seeking re-election.
Megna was elected in 2000, unseating Republican Chris DePino.
