A freshman lawmaker has received his committee assignments and was sworn in yesterday. Democrat Ken Gucker will represent parts of Danbury, New Fairfield, and Ridgefield in the 138th House District. He says there is a lot of work ahead, and he is ready for the challenge. Active in land use, environmental, conservation and historic preservation issues in Danbury, Gucker was asked by Speaker Aresimowicz to serve on the Legislature’s Environment Committee and Planning and Development Committee. He is also a member of the Banks Committee. Aresimowicz said Western Connecticut is in Ken’s blood and will fight for his constituents which is exactly what you want from your state representative. The entire membership of the General Assembly was sworn into office at the State Capitol in Hartford during the opening day ceremony of the 2019 Legislative Session.
