Hwang Wins Re-election for the 28th District Senate Seat

Commitment to Community, Civility and Collaboration
by State Senator Tony Hwang

I want to express my deepest gratitude to all who supported me in this very emotional and charged election cycle. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to continue serving Connecticut’s 28th District as State Senator. It is an enormous responsibility to represent everyone in the district, and it is one that I do not take lightly.

I also wish to congratulate our newly elected Governor Lamont and fellow members of the Connecticut General Assembly. I look forward to working together to address the unprecedented challenges ahead of us, and to create a sustainable path for the future of our state.

Voter turnout is a great reflection of political engagement, and on Tuesday, the people of the 28th Senate District clearly showed that they are interested and insist on being heard. The reality is that the challenges in front of us are massive. We do not have the luxury of a wait and see attitude. We must act now. My hope is that we, as a state and as a people, are able to bridge any divide that lies between us, and work collaboratively to implement viable solutions.

As I’ve said many times throughout my campaign, I believe that fiscal accountability is the bedrock of job creation and economic growth. Prioritizing our spending and empowering our businesses are just a few of the steps necessary for long-term growth and success. But in the process, we must not lose sight of our moral responsibility to protect our most vulnerable and at-risk communities. We can and we must balance fiscal accountability with social responsibility.

You may have heard me talk about my commitment to community and it is something that I believe is at the very heart of public service. My promise to you - the people of District 28 - is that I will remain committed and willing to collaborate and will represent you to the best of my ability. We are in this together, and that is a great thing.

  1. Congratulations Tony! We are lucky to have someone with your dedication and temperament representing us in Hartford. Thank you for sounding a positive tone throughout the election and continuing on in your effort to make this state better for all. I hope you and the rest of our F airfield delegation, Brenda, Laura and Cristin, will continue to fight for what is best for the people and not special interests or political cronies in Hartford.
  2. Congratulation, it is hard to believe that you didn't won by a landslide, for a unknown opponent. I guess that many people didn't like Trump Tax deal that effective all of us.
