Stafstrom Returns As State House Judiciary Chair

House Judiciary Chair Steve Stafstrom.

Fresh off a big win for another two-year term, State Rep. Steve Stafstrom has been reappointed House chair of the powerful Judiciary Committee. The state legislature begins a new session in early January.

Stafstrom eblast to constituents:

Today, House Speaker-designate Matt Ritter and House Majority Leader Jason Rojas announced my reappointment as the House chairman of the Judiciary Committee. I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue to serve the people of Bridgeport in this leadership capacity.

I am honored that Speaker Ritter and Majority Leader Rojas have placed their trust in me to head the Judiciary Committee. This committee does such important work protecting the rights of Connecticut residents and ensuring our judiciary system treats everyone fairly and equally.

I will be working on many issues that will impact both Bridgeport and our state, some of which include: criminal justice reform, gun safety measures, the push to legalize recreational cannabis, responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuring that Bridgeport receives its fair share of funding and economic development opportunities.

  1. Don: When calculating voter turnout, it would seem that all potential voters should be included in the calculations. While Bridgeport has about 70,000 registered voters, there are over 100,000 people (of our 150,000 population) that could be registered — and voting in elections… So: if we had about 40,000 people vote in Bridgeport in this election, it seems that we should really be thinking in terms of 40%…
