OIB has had an email exchange with State Rep.-elect Christina Ayala. She politely declined to address any specific details regarding her latest legal challenges but indicated she’s looking forward to serving in the State House.
“I am so eager and hungry to advocate for what is needed in my district,” she wrote … “Lord provided I will be able to advocate for the needs in my community! I have no ulterior motives for running other than being the humble voice of those that I serve.”
In November Ayala was elected to Connecticut’s 128th State House seat that serves the city’s East Side and Hollow neighborhoods. The Democrat is scheduled to receive the oath of office next month. Some party officials have questioned her ability to serve in light of two separate misdemeanor charges since August while others have taken a wait-and-see attitude.
