State Senator Pat Billie Miller (D-Stamford) was re-appointed Chair of the Banking Committee and appointed Vice Chair of the Aging Committee. Sen. Miller will remain as Vice Chair of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee.
“I’m grateful to state Senators Martin Looney and Bob Duff for re-appointing me as chair of Banking Committee and I look forward to building on the momentum set forth this past session,” Sen. Miller said. “In both the Banking Committee and Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee, I’m excited to continue strengthening Connecticut’s fiscal stability and the accessibility of our financial institutions. In the Aging Committee, there is always more we can do to protect seniors and ensure they are provided the long-term services they need to remain comfortable in our state, and I am eager to collaborate with my colleagues and the community to do this important work.”
This will be Sen. Miller’s second term representing the 27th District. On International Women’s Day, March 8, 2021, she became the first woman, first Black woman and the first person of color to represent the 27th District.
“Sen. Miller has been an asset to our caucus through her work ethic and her leadership,” Sen. Looney said. “I am excited to continue working with her in the state Senate.”
Before joining the Senate, Sen. Miller served as a member of the state House of Representatives for Stamford’s 145th District, dating back to 2009. The legislative session begins on January 4, 2022.
